Cracking signing, Make it happen – Leeds fans want 5ft 9 assist king at ER after big development
Peterborough United have put their 5ft 9 assist king on the transfer market after failing to win promotion, and Leeds fans are desperate for him to come to Elland Road.
As quoted on Sporting Life, Peterborough’s chairman Darragh MacAnthony said: “When I sat down with Marcus last August and agreed a new contract with him, I gave him my verbal assurances that were we to fall short and not gain promotion, I would allow him to leave the club subject to an offer acceptable to the football club and place him on the transfer list.
“It is only right that I stick to my word and give him the best chance possible to further his ambitions of playing further up the football pyramid so with sadness today (Thursday), I can confirm he is available for transfer.”
Maddison has been ripping up League One this season with 12 goals and a hugely impressive 23 assists in 52 games across all competitions.
He joined Peterborough from Gateshead in the summer of 2014 for £284k but he would command a much hugher fee now, with his contract not set to expire until 2020.

However, Leeds fans are convinced that he’d be a hit at Elland Road, with one fan saying that he’d be a “cracking signing”.

#lufc would be daft not to go back in for Marcus Maddison – quick, scores/assits goals and would be extremely good value for money.

Marcus Maddison would be a very good signing for us imo #lufc

#lufc were close to signing Maddison under Steve Evans. The mutual agreement to transfer list him will certainly help drive down the price that was quoted during this season.
