Leeds accept stopper offer

Published Add your comment

Leeds have accepted an undisclosed offer from npower Championship rivals Leicester for goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.

The 24-year-old has spent only one season at Elland Road after arriving from Notts County last summer, making 40 appearances.

Leeds manager Simon Grayson said: "We feel this is the right deal for the club. We spoke to Kasper's agent at the end of the season about a contract extension and it was apparent that it was going to be difficult to agree a deal."


He added: "Given the fact he has one year remaining on his contract we feel this is in the best interests of Leeds United."
