Kasper Schmeichel ‘agrees to join Nice in shock transfer from Leicester’ after more than a decade at King Power


LEICESTER goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel has agreed a deal to join French side Nice, according to reports.

The veteran stopper is set to leave the Foxes after 11 years at the club

But his move is dependent on Leicester finding a replacement, according to French newspaper L’Equipe.

Schmeichel is in the final year of his contract and is said to want to leave on good terms after his lengthy service to the club.

Brighton goalie Robert Sanchez has been rumoured as a potential replacement for the 35-year-old.

And Schmeichel will be given the green light to depart when a new shot stopper arrives to take over the gloves from him.

Despite being under contract at Leicester for another year, L’Equipe say Schmeichel is allowed to join an overseas club for free this summer.

Although it’s claimed Leicester’s failure to sign a replacement as of yet is currently “blocking” his transfer.

Schmeichel is poised to join Ligue 1 outfit Nice after they missed out on Swiss international Yann Sommer.

Reports over the weekend suggested Nice were plotting a move for the Danish star.

Now they have appeared to have made their move.

Last season’s fifth-placed side in Ligue 1 are on the lookout for a new goalkeeper after Walter Benitez left to join Dutch club PSV.

Schmeichel has played 477 games for Leicester – helping them to Premier League and FA Cup glory in his time at the club.

He has also been capped 84 times by Denmark.
