The middle half of the Three Lions is on City and United radars – but only has an eye for the upcoming Nations League.

& # 39; When I'm away with England, I don't think of anything to do with club football, & # 39; said Maguire from the England training camp in St George & # 39; s Park. & # 39;

As soon as I wear the badge, my only focus is on England. I am completely focused on the two games that are coming. & # 39;

Maguire met Leicester, teammate James Maddison, on Tuesday in a clash between seniors and under 21 who was comfortably won by the older statesmen.

Maddison is also linked to a move away from the King Power after a wonderful first season with the club, but Maguire believes the talented playmaker should stay put.

& # 39; He had a great first year, & # 39; he said. & # 39; He has done very well and is a talented boy. I think Leicester is a great club for him. He can keep improving there. There may be some bids, but I'm sure Leicester wants to keep him. & # 39;

Maddison, 22, was tipped for a senior call-up, but Maguire believes he can excel for the Under 21s going to the euro.

& # 39; I would not say that I am disappointed with him & he said. & # 39; A big tournament is coming. It will be a great experience to go out there. Hopefully he can learn from it. If he keeps playing as he has, he will be in the first team. & # 39;

England will take on the Netherlands in the semi-final of the Nations League in Portugal, before a final or third-place play-off at the end of the critically acclaimed tournament debut. Their last taste of silverware came in Le Tournoi in 1997, and the 26-year-old would like to end that harsh curse after last year's trip to the World Cup semi-final.

& # 39; It has been a long time since we had a trophy, & # 39; said Maguire. & # 39; We want to be winners. We have many winners in our team, especially with the (Manchester) City guys who have just appeared. & # 39;

Some have questioned the importance of the tournament, but the defender born in Sheffield has none of it.

& # 39; The Nations League is very important & # 39 ;, he said. & # 39; I think you've seen how competitive it has been. We didn't report really high-priced teams recently, so getting through a group that includes Croatia and Spain is a big achievement for us. We look forward to a good summer. & # 39;

England is waiting for players from Liverpool, Tottenham and Chelsea, with all three in European finals, and Maguire says that their absence has made things a little different.

& # 39; It hasn't made it difficult, & # 39; he said. & # 39; But it is strange to come to the camp with 10 players from the field. We have done a lot of small-scale work with high intensity. We ensure that we are fit and then continue to work tactically. It was nice to have a bit of one-on-one in terms of chatting and working in the field. & # 39;
