England manager Gareth Southgate is set to resist calling up Leicester midfielder James Maddison for the Nations League finals this summer.
According to The Mirror, Southgate will opt not to select Maddison in his squad, despite his stellar season.
Maddison ended the campaign having created the most goalscoring opportunities in the entire Premier League, creating 100 chances in the division throughout the campaign, just ahead of Chelsea forward Eden Hazard.
The midfielder joined last summer from Championship side Norwich City for a fee in the region of £25m and was recently named as the club’s Young Player of the Season at their annual awards dinner.
Maddison scored seven and assisted seven in the league, with Leicester securing themselves a top ten finish in the Premier League under Brendan Rodgers.
Southgate has decided not to call Maddison up as he believes that he is best off with the under-21’s this summer as they gear up for the European Championships in June.
