Leeds United have been linked with Marcus Maddison throughout his time at Peterborough United.

Leeds United fans are hoping that they are the second Championship club in for Peterborough United attacking midfielder Marcus Maddison.

Leeds have been long-term admirers of Maddison, who appears to be heading for the exit door at Posh.

Peterborough have already given Charlton Athletic permission to speak to their star creator, but the Addicks have struggled to agree personal terms with him.

Posh chairman Darragh MacAnthony has now revealed that a second team has come in for £2.5 million-rated (Northern Echo) Maddison, and Leeds supporters are hoping that they are the side trying to beat Charlton to the 26-year-old’s signature.

Maddison has been a regular supplier of assists at League One level, and could enhance Leeds’ attacking options if he was to move to Elland Road.

There would have to big question marks over whether he would be able to fit into a Marcelo Bielsa side if he was to move to Leeds though.

Maddison has shown very little willingness to defend during his time with Posh, and whether he would have the work-rate required to excel in a high-pressing team such as Leeds is very much up for debate.
