Maddison replied: 'I appreciate that, I do remember that Harry to be honest.

That game was at Loftus Road.'I remember Steven Pressley actually telling me, he said, "Harry Redknapp really liked the look of you as a player", and I remember thinking, "Wow", I'm pretty sure I went and put a Facebook status up that night saying, "Lads get on what Harry Redknapp said about me".

The technically gifted midfielder went on to prove that Redknapp was correct in his early assessment.

Maddison has thrived for the Foxes under Brendan Rodgers and earned his first England cap.
