Denmark Star Schmeichel Signs New Leicester City Deal



The Denmark international put pen to paper on a new five-year deal, despite rumours linking him with a move to Chelsea and Roma in the transfer window. 

The 31-year-old shot-stopper was instrumental in Leicester's incredible Premier League-winning campaign of 2015/16, and has previously spent time with both Manchester City and Leeds United. 

Speaking to the club's official website, Schmeichel said: "I'm very happy to be here for many more years. I've spent the majority of my career at Leicester now and had some amazing times here, so hopefully we'll have some more.

"I've felt at home at this club from day one, so I'd like to thank the fans for the support they've given me and also the owners who've played a huge part in my career. I want to bring more success to this club as I've loved every minute and hopefully we can keep going in the right direction."
