Huddersfield are the latest Premier League club to be added to the long list of admirers monitoring Norwich City star James Maddison, according to journalist Alan Nixon.

Huddersfield head coach David Wagner has personally scouted the 21-year-old playmaker and will make a move if his side avoid relegation.

The Terriers are just three points above the drop zone with seven games remaining after a 2-0 home defeat to relegation rivals Crystal Palace yesterday.

The former Coventry City starlet James Maddison was the subject of a £12million bid from West Ham United in January.

Eastern Daily Press suggests the Canaries want ‘about £15million’ for their prized asset, who rolled home a penalty and delivered the corner from which Grant Hanley scored during City’s 3-2 home win over Reading on Saturday.

That took his personal contribution to 14 goals and 10 assists from 41 games in an incredible first full season as a Norwich player for the Coventry City academy product, signed in a deal worth around £2.5m in January 2016.

Maddison’s impressive form has now seen him linked with most top-flight clubs, including Manchester City, Liverpool, Tottenham, Manchester United, Leicester, West Ham, Everton and Bournemouth.

It looks increasingly likely that Norwich will struggle to keep hold of Maddison as a mid-table Championship finish looms but with so many clubs interested in the England U21 international, an auction could see his price tag continue to rise.

Coventry are monitoring the situation closely because they have a sell-on clause still in place after allowing Maddison to join Norwich in 2016.
