Norwich anticipating Leicester windfall

Norwich City are anticipating a windfall from Leicester City this week.

The Sun says Leicester midfielder James Maddison moved from Carrow Road in a £20million move this summer, with add-ons for making an international breakthrough.

And the 21-year-old has taken just eight Premier League appearances to earn a call-up to Gareth Southgate's squad.

Norwich will pocket around £250,000 should Maddison make his Three Lions debut in the Uefa Nations League clash in Croatia.

Southgate called up rookies Maddison, Jadon Sancho, Mason Mount and Lewis Dunk and insisted they are ready to play a part and not to make up the numbers.

Maddison's three goals for Leicester put him in Southgate's plans following a Dele Alli's injury.
