Kieran Dowell revealed James Maddison gave Norwich City a glowing endorsement before he decided to seal his move from Everton.

The attacking midfielder has signed a three year deal after finally leaving the Toffees following a series of Championship loan spells.

The 22-year-old won the World Cup with England’s Under-20s, and has struck up a friendship with City’s club record sale Maddison during international spells.

“James Maddison, who I’m close with and know from England, he only had good things to say about the club and the manager,” said Dowell, speaking to the club’s official site.

“He’s gone on to do brilliant things so he was a great person to speak to and get recommendations from.
