Peterborough United midfielder Marcus Maddison has been revealed as the most creative player in English football, with the former Newcastle United scholar leading the charts with sixteen assists.
Beating out competition from the likes of £55 million Manchester City man Kevin De Bruyne, Maddison emerged top of the pile in a list compiled by statisticians The Ninety-Two on Twitter.
Top assists in the top four divisions:
16 – Marcus Maddison
14 – Kevin De Bruyne
13 – Robert Snodgrass
12 – Ivan Cavaleiro
12 – Jack Payne
12 – Adebayo Akinfenwa
12 – Barry Douglas
12 – Matthew Taylor
12 – Graham Carey

In remarkable form, Maddison has established a deadly partnership with striker Jack Marriott that has seen the Posh to the verge of the play-offs.
Having been close to signing for Leeds United in 2016, it looks increasingly likely that the midfielder won’t be playing his football at London Road next semester.
Maddison has consistently proven that he is ready to make the step up next season, whether that be into the Championship or the Premier League.
His vision and eye for a pass is arguably second to none in the entire Football League and clubs will clamour for his signature when the transfer window opens for business once again.
Destined for a move, the 24-year-old will capture a significant fee for his current employers who have made millions in player sales in recent times following the departures of the likes of Britt Assombalonga and Dwight Gayle.
Posh fans, thoughts?
