James Maddison: Youngster becomes Norwich's eighth signing

Norwich have beaten off competition from Tottenham to land Coventry starlet James Maddison, who has been loaned back to the Sky Blues.

The 19-year-old has moved for an undisclosed fee and agreed a three-and-a-half-year deal at Carrow Road, with an option for a further year.

Canaries boss Alex Neil told his club’s official website: “We’re delighted to sign James as he is a fantastic prospect who has already made a mark at Coventry at such a young age.

“He has real potential to develop, making this deal one we’re really pleased to get over the line.

“James will return on loan to Coventry for the rest of the season to continue his development before joining up with us on a full-time basis in the summer.”

Maddison is Norwich’s eighth signing of the winter transfer window, following Matt Jarvis, Ivo Pinto, Timm Klose, Steven Naismith and Patrick Bamford, plus future prospects Ben Godfrey and Ebou Adams, to Norfolk.
