Leicester star Maddison praises Maguire for Man Utd attitude

James Maddison has praised former Leicester City teammate Harry Maguire for his attitude during his impending transfer to Manchester United.

United finally bought the England international earlier this month after a drawn out pursuit which ended when they paid the Foxes around 80m for his signature.

"The way he conducted himself over the summer was fantastic and it's the perfect example for anyone going through that situation," Maddison told Sky Sports.

"He came into training every day, trained as well as he could, was excellent in pre-season games and his focus was on Leicester. When it came to the time to sign for Manchester United then so be it, but he conducted himself brilliantly."
