Leeds United fans are keen to see Peterborough United’s Marcus Maddison move to Elland Road.

Maddison has recently been linked with a move to Leeds in the Peterborough Evening Telegraph, with the winger impressing in League One.

The Whites are likely to have to pay a big fee for Maddison, if they want to sign him.

But Leeds fans are still keen to see the attacking midfielder added to Thomas Christiansen’s squad.

Maddison has already claimed a staggering 23 assists in all competitions this term, with the 24-year-old regularly supplying his teammates.

Posh are understandably keen to keep hold of Maddison, but a big fee could tempt Grant McCann’s side into selling.

Leeds do have funds to spend in January, and there is a feeling that Maddison’s arrival at Elland Road could help the Whites earn promotion.

Leeds are currently in fifth place in the Championship table, after winning their last four matches on the bounce.
