Leicester City: Kasper Schmeichel pens new contract

Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel has committed his long-term future by signing a new five-year contract with the Premier League champions.

The Denmark international was a key player of the Foxes’ Premier League success last season, playing every match as Claudio Ranieri’s side have won the most unlikely of triumphs.

Schmeichel, 29, conceded just 11 goals to help the club keep the chasing pack at arm’s length, and now the keeper has signed a new deal, that will keep him at the King Power Stadium until 2021.

“I’m just buzzing and I can’t wait for the season to get started. It was a very easy decision,” Schmeichel told the club’s official website.

“It was a case of coming back after winning the Premier League and making sure that the hunger was the same within myself and the squad. I’ve come back absolutely convinced that this is the place for me to be.

“We’ve taken some massive steps and ever since I arrived it’s been fantastic. I’ve loved being here from minute one.”

Schmeichel joins the likes of Jamie Vardy and Wes Morgan in committing their futures to the Leicester City this summer.
