James Maddison won’t require surgery after picking up a knee ligament injury, according to Norwich’s official site.
The 21-year-old ended the season in the worst possible way because he picked up an injury, which looked serious, in the 5-1 loss to Sheffield Wednesday. This could have thwarted his plans to move to a Premier League club, temporarily, after such a great individual season.
Luckily for him, he will be able to resume training after eight weeks and he won’t require any surgery.
Therefore, he will be back for pre-season and be able to properly prepare for next season, which is potentially likely to be at a different club, with the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool monitoring the midfielder, who is valued around the £30m mark.
Sporting Director, Stuart Webber, had this to say about the injury to the Canaries’ official site: “On a positive note, the injury is not as bad as we had first feared it might be and thankfully no operation is needed. All being well, James will be fighting fit and ready to come back early in our pre-season schedule.”
Maddison has been exceptional for Norwich this season with 14 goals and eight assists in the league. His form has attracted some of the big Premier League clubs, so this news benefits him most because it’s unlikely to stop them from making a move for him.
Although it also helps Norwich because they need the money from his transfer fee to improve the squad even though they will be sad to see such a talented prospect leave.
At the very least it allows Maddison to continue his development unhindered because ligament injuries can be long-term with lasting effects on the player, which is a huge positive.
