Leicester boss Puel: Face-to-face chat convinced Maddison

Leicester City boss Claude Puel admits a face-to-face meeting with James Maddison was key to beating Southampton to his signing.

The midfielder joined over the summer from Norwich City.

Puel said: “When I spoke to him I tried to give him the truth.

“I like to analyse the player to give him my feelings and feedback, and to ask questions about his feelings about his play and feedback.

“I like to tell him how he can develop. He has made a lot of progress without the ball.

“I like to introduce the project of the club. When we look at Leicester it's a club which develops young players."
