According to the Evening Standard, Tottenham are ready to step up their attempts to sign the English international in the coming weeks.

Spurs are believed to have moved ahead of Newcastle in the race for the midfielder and are expected to accelerate discussions over the midfielder's signature.

The Foxes are reportedly holding out for £60 million for Maddison, with Spurs hopeful to negotiate a lower fee.

Maddison deletes old Tottenham tweets

The Mirror reports that views made by Maddison, in which he criticised Spurs, have since resurfaced in the wake of his proposed move to the north London outfit.

The publication adds that the 26-year-old has moved with speed to delete the tweets which had him expressing previous disdain for his possible new club.

One of the tweets from the past also had Maddison taking aim at Tottenham's biggest star at the time, Gareth Bale.

"I hate Gareth Bale with a passion, calm down you monkey, [Jack] Wilshere is 10x better than you chimpanzee," he wrote.

The midfielder will be hoping to compensate for his apparent previous hatred for Spurs with good performances, should he seal the move.

Koulibaly aims dig at Chelsea

Earlier, Sports Brief reported on Senegalese star, Kalidou Koulibaly's brutal dig at Chelsea after sealing his Stamford Bridge exit.

The defender is among a host of Blues stars who have been offloaded this summer for a move to Saudi Arabia and its top flight league.

Koulibaly completed his £17mil transfer to top side, Al-Hilal, with the move seeing him link up with former Wolves ace, Ruben Neves.
