​Puel lauds new Leicester signing Maddison

Leicester manager Claude Puel has backed 21 year old midfielder James Maddison to break into the England squad this season.

"I think it's a good start for him but like all the players, he has to confirm his good start and play with consistency," Puel said.

"I think as a manager it will be great to see him at a high level and to play for his national team, but I think he has to keep a good focus, a good concentration in his games and if he has a good amount it will be fun for him and for his teammates."
