The talented midfielder remains a top target for Manchester United.
Club legend Heskey isn't convinced his departure is a foregone conclusion, though.
“I can't see James Maddison joining Man United in the summer," Heskey told Gentingbet.
“It's good that he's actually being linked to the top clubs because it shows that he's actually doing something well. I think he's doing very well.
“He's a very, very creative young player, a confident young player and Brendan seems to be getting the best out of him.
“But I can't see him leaving this summer.
“I feel he'll stay for at least another year, if not two."
