Leicester are moving closer to tying down in-demand James Maddison on a bumper long-term deal in the New Year to keep him out of Manchester United's clutches.

And the high-flying Foxes are also making progress in talks to reward key defender Caglar Soyuncu on a new contract too.

Leicester have lost stars in the past including Harry Maguire to Manchester United , Riyad Mahrez to Manchester City and N'Golo Kante to Chelsea.

But they are working hard behind the scenes to keep their current young exciting side together after their storming season so far.
