According to TeamTalk, Boro, Derby, Blackburn and Bristol City had all shown interest in the pair who have both impressed in League One this season.

However, there were significant doubts about the report, which claimed the duo were valued at £10million each.

Maddison, 25, has a well-documented £2.5million release clause and will see his current deal expire this summer.
