Is this wonderkid set to move to London this summer?

According to reports in the Mirror Online Norwich City wonderkid, James Maddison could be set to swap East Anglia for the capital this summer, with both Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea chasing the 21 year-olds signature.

The central midfielder has been in impressive form this season scoring 14 goals in all competitions and providing 10 assists for his teammates. With this rich vein of form, the ‘Canaries’ are looking for a fee in the region of £25m for Maddison and with Norwich looking like they’re going to have another season in the Championship the lure of Premier League football may be hard to resist for Maddison.

Tottenham have a history of plucking young talent from the Football League with Dele Alli joining the club from Milton Keynes Dons for £5m in 2014, and also they promote from within with the likes of Kyle Walker-Peters and Josh Onomah been given their first team debuts in recent seasons.

Chelsea, on the other hand, could be too much to resist as like Tottenham they are consistently in the mix for major trophies every season and with the clubs average squad age of 27.7 years, the ninth highest in the Premier League the club may look to bring in young talent and Maddison fits the bill perfectly.

If the Norwich midfielder continues in the form he is in between now and the end of the season, then it will be more than just Tottenham and Chelsea in for him, but one thing is for sure that the ‘Canaries’ will be looking for as much money as possible for their starman.

Match Preview: Peterborough United v MK Dons

Big match on Tuesday for Posh fans, after the defeat at home to Bradford at the weekend Peterborough will be looking to bounce back against their rivals, MK Dons on Tuesday night.

MK have won three of the last five meetings between the two sides, two of those have come at London Road, the only exceptions are a 2-0 loss at StadiumMK and a 3-2 thriller in 2014, last time the Dons came to London Road they smashed the Posh 4-0 with goals from Harvey Barnes, Kieran Agard and a brace from Chuks Aneke.

MK come into this game only winning two of their last five games, the 1-0 win against Plymouth at the weekend and 2-0 against Brighton Under 21s in the Checkatrade Trophy, they sit 15th in League 1 with only seven points from six games only scoring four goals in those six games as well.

This is a huge match for both sides like any derby the intensity will be turned up for this fixture, MK will want to use this to help bring them up the table and start closing the gap to their rivals as Posh sit 3rd at the moment and MK are 15th, Posh will want to bounce back after the lose at the weekend and will want to avoid losing three in a row against the Dons.

Robbie Neilson had a huge overhaul of his team over the summer as well bringing in 19 new players with the likes of Osman Sow, Aidan Nesbitt and Ethan Ebanks-Landell coming in to help out their squad for the new campaign.

If anything I’m sure this match will have a lot of attacking football from both sides, as Posh showed at the weekend even in defeat they create a lot of chances so if anything is to go by it’s one of the highest scoring teams in the league against one of the lowest but as we’ve seen it happen many times before anything can happen in a derby.

Possible scores, 3-0 Posh or 4-1 Posh.

Good news for Posh fans as well that they have won three of their last four meetings the only exception  was a 2-0 loss at MK last season and the last meeting they had at London Road was a 4-0 smashing by The Posh.

This match is big for both sides as MK won’t want to make it four losses in a row against Peterborough and they will want to get momentum going into the rest of the season, whereas Peterborough will want to bounce back quickly from the loss at the weekend especially when a lot of their players said at the weekend that they wanted to challenge for the Play-offs this season.
