Maddison's future at the King Power Stadium
The 24-year-old has been continuously linked with a move away from the King Power Stadium as Arsenal have been reported to be interested in Maddison.
However, reports claim that the former Norwich star has ruled out a move to north London and would help the Foxes win trophies following his statement on the club's TV channel LCTV.
"I'm feeling really good.
"We had quite a long break from the last day of the season to the first day back and you need that break.
"You get that hunger back, the motivation back and you come back almost ready.
"Obviously we got success last year by winning the FA Cup but that doesn't come by fluke.
"You want to install that winning mentality but it doesn't come by just saying it out loud - you have to actually do it and put it into practice in training."
