Hull City keen on Kasper Schmeichel
Peter Schmeichel reveals Hull City are interested in his son
Former Manchester United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel has revealed that Hull City are interested in signing his son, Kasper.
Kasper Schmeichel, currently at Leicester City, has previously announced his desire to play in the Premier League and those hopes of achieving that with the Foxes were dashed after their dramatic Play-off defeat to Watford. However, his father Peter has revealed that there are clubs interested and his former team-mate Steve Bruce is keen on signing his son.
"There are several interested clubs," Schmeichel told DR. "Hull made two official offers and they have a great manager, Steve Bruce, who is one of my best friends.
"Steve has known Kasper since he was three years old and Kasper and [Bruce's son] Alex grew up together, so that is a fantastic story.
"But how it all ends up is up to Kasper, his agent and the clubs. It is not easy because he is playing at a club that does not want to sell him."
Peter Schmeichel and Bruce were team-mates at Manchester United for five years between 1991 and 1996 and this could be a key factor in deciding where his son ends up next season.
Hull City will be playing Premier League football next season after achieving promotion from the Championship and prospect of top-flight football may attract Kasper Schmeichel.
He briefly tasted Premier League football for Manchester City, making eight appearances in the league.
But the Dane struggled to establish himself as a first-team regular and was sent on loan before joining Notts County in 2009.
After only spending one season at both Notts County and Leeds United he joined Leicester City in 2011 where he has been their number one ever since.
