​Leicester midfielder Maddison dreaming of England call-up

Leicester City midfielder James Maddison is dreaming of an England cap in the near future.

Maddison joined Leicester in the summer from Norwich and has made his mark in the Premier League already.

The 21-year-old has been a bright spark for the club, as their main creative outlet.

He is in the under-21 squad, but he hopes to get a full call up soon.

"I don't want to get too far ahead of myself, I've only played four games in the Premier League," Maddison told Sky Sports.

"It is a dream of mine to play for England, it always has been since I was a very young boy.

"Gareth has obviously done a brilliant job. We've got such a young squad with so much talent, it's a good time to be an England player.

"Hopefully I can keep impressing with my club and the U21s and we'll see where it goes."
