PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Former Blackburn Rovers striker Chris Sutton is puzzled over Newcastle United’s attempt to sign James Maddison. Leicester City have rejected two bids for the 25-year-old, with the Magpies falling short of a reported £60million asking price. Newcastle are yet to make a third offer for Maddison but Foxes' boss Brendan Rodgers has admitted they could be helpless to keep the midfielder should Toon chiefs increase their bid. Luring a star player from one of their direct rivals would be a statement of intent from United. Eddie Howe has made no secret of his desire to bolster his attacking options before the window slams shut on September 1.
