"There has been no formal approach or bid for James Maddison." - Coventry City's James Maddison

21 January 2016

The City boss has once again stated that the best place for Maddison is with the Sky Blues this season...

Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray confirmed the club has received no bids for midfielder James Maddison.

There continues to be speculation in the national media on the future of the City Academy prospect who has made 11 appearances this season, scoring two goals.

The 19-year old came through the ranks at the City Academy and has had an impressive impact on the first-team this season, despite a five-month injury lay-off.

The City boss has denied claims there has been a formal approach to the club on the City teenager and believes it is best for him to stay here.

He said: "I don't know of any speculation because I don't read it. 

"There is always speculation in the transfer window about good players but I don't think it's anything to worry about.

"He's only a young boy and only played around 15-20 games at League One level. He should just concentrate on his football and continue to thrive in this environment.

"There has been no formal approach or bid. I'm sure every club in the Premier League is aware of the talent down here, not just James Maddison, but as in formal bids, no."
