Coventry City striker James Maddison has signed his first professional deal with the club until June 2018.
The 18-year old, who celebrated his birthday yesterday, has penned a three-and-a-half year deal after progressing through the City Academy system since the age of seven.
The Coventry-born graduate, who can also play in midfield, has regularly featured for the Under-21s and has helped the Under-18s side achieve a terrific start to the season with nine goals in seven games for the Academy side.
Maddison has progressed through all the age groups at the City Academy and we've got hold of some great photos of Maddison's journey through the ages.
Also, this video below features footage from Maddison's journey through the Academy.
*With thanks to the Maddison family for the photos and video.
