James Maddison tonight paid tribute to Norwich City fans after waving goodbye to Carrow Road.

The £20m man took to Twitter hours after his move to Premier League Leicester City was confirmed.

In a series of tweets to his 42,000 followers, Maddison said: 'Can't go without saying a massive, massive thank you to everyone involved with Norwich City. From Delia and Michael, to Stuart and the Boss.

'Can't forget my brilliant team-mates and most importantly you amazing fans! I can't thank you enough! You installed confidence in me and gave me the freedom to go and be the player I wanted to be, so I will be forever grateful for that.

'You didn't get on my back if I made a mistake and you supported me whether I was scoring worldies or getting tackled near my own goal.I hope Norwich gets back to where it belongs and that is most definitely the Premier League!

'I am now a Canary for life and it'll be the first result I check. Good luck to everyone involved with Norwich City. #JM23.'

Then followed a message to his new fans, at Leicester: 'As a young boy my dream was always to play in the Premier League! Now I have the opportunity to make my dream come true and I can't wait to get started at this fantastic football club! Delighted to be here and looking forward to meeting all of you.'
