Leicester reject third bid from Hull for Schmeichel

Next Story

Leicester City have turned down a third bid by Hull City for young Danish goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel. 

Sky Sports News have reported that the bid that has been rejected is in the region of £2m, plus a player in exchange. But Leicester have rejected the offer, as they value their player much higher. 

Steve Bruce is keen to add to his goalkeeping ranks, with David Stockdale the only noticeable name in the Tigers goalkeeping arsenal. 

It is not yet known whether former Birmingham and Wigan manager Steve Bruce will make a return bid for the 26-year-old keeper. 

Schmeichel, son of famous Manchester United keeper Peter Schmeichel, has been playing in the East Midlands since 2011 after a transfer from Leeds United. 

It is not yet known whether Leicester are holding out for a bigger transfer offer, or are not looking to sell their player at all. However, Schmeichel has only one-year left on his current deal so the Foxes could lose Schmeichel on a free transfer next summer.

Schmeichel has featured prominently in nearly all of Leicester's games this season, making a total of 51 appearances last term.
