Goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel has boosted Leicester by signing a new deal to keep him at the club until summer 2023. The Denmark international – one of the stars of the World Cup and a title winner with the Foxes in 2016 – will now remain at the King Power Stadium for another five years.
“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,” he told Leicester’s official website.
Schmeichel joined Leicester from Leeds in 2011, having started his career at Manchester City.
“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,” the 31-year-old added.
“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.”
