The 21-year-old - who has made 31 appearances in all competitions for the Canaries this season - has been the topic of much speculation in recent weeks, with several clubs having expressed an interest.

Tottenham, Manchester City, Liverpool and Leicester City have all been cited as possible destinations for the England Under 21 international, who began his pro career at Coventry before joining Norwich in February 2016.

Maddison is contracted to the Championship club until the summer of 2019. He was watched by West Ham manager David Moyes at the weekend.
