Transfer Rumours: Schmeichel Set To Leave Leicester This Summer

Published

Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel may seek an exit at the end of the season, after growing tired of working under Claude Puel.

According to The Sun, the Danish shot-stopper’s father and Premier League legend Peter has discussed the possibility of a summer transfer.

When asked about Kasper’s future, Schmeichel responded: “Of course he wants to challenge himself like any other player. But I don’t think he wants to go to Europe.

“I think he loves England too much, I think he likes the Premier League too much, so it’s a difficult one.”

Kasper Schmeichel has been with Leicester since 2011, making more than 300 appearances for the club and playing a key role in their 2015-16 Premier League title-winning campaign.

The 32-year-old has a contract at the King Power Stadium until the summer of 2023, but his father has suggested that Claude Puel‘s presence as head coach is making the Dane unhappy.

Peter Schmeichel also told BeIN Sports that: “Leicester City are a really good football club. They’ve got good players they just don’t have the manager who can get the best out of them.”Once they get everything sorted out – and I leave it to you to interpret what that means – you’ll see Leicester maybe in fifth to eighth place where they belong.”

Leicester’s 3-1 defeat at Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday has left them in 12th position in the Premier League table.
