England legend Stuart Pearce has urged James Maddison to turn down a big-money move to Manchester United in January.

Maddison had a magnificent debut season in the Premier League with Leicester, notching up seven goals and seven assists last term, and the likes of United, Manchester City and Liverpool have all been linked with the talented 22-year-old midfielder.

It's understood United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward made an approach for Maddison in June, but Leicester's £80million asking price for the England international put the Red Devils off a potential deal.

Reports claim that Maddison remains on United's radar ahead of the January transfer window, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer identifying the youngster as his ideal midfielder target over Christian Eriksen.

Former England and Nottingham Forest defender Pearce acknowledges that Maddison would be an 'asset' for a club like United, but believes staying at Leicester would be the best option at this stage of his career.

'I think from his point of view at this moment in time, he's working with a wonderful manager in Brendan Rodgers,' Pearce told Sky Sports' The Debate.

Earlier this month, Maddison admitted that he has ambitions to play at the 'highest level' down the line.
