According to ExWHUemployee, West Ham United were interested in James Maddison last season but ultimately decided against a move for the attacker.
The 22-year-old has been in impressive form for the Foxes this season – scoring seven times and contributing seven assists in 35 Premier League appearances.
According to ExWHUemployee, former Hammers boss David Moyes decided that Maddison was not good enough after watching him against Chelsea in the FA Cup.
That news has not gone down well with the West Ham fans, though, with many taking to social media to criticise the decision.

Maddison is yet to make his England bow, but surely cannot be too far away as he continues to impress in the Premier League.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the frustrated West Ham supporters can be seen below:
Absurdly bad decision making!
I thank Moyes for keeping us up, but the mere fact he was willing for us to bid big money for Cairney when a younger and better player was available, has to tell you he was never a long term option

Should never let temporary managers make permanent decisions regarding players in and out! But with a director of football now working with MP this should change somewhat I’m hoping.

The man who thought Maddison wasn’t good enough thought Hugill was……
