Kasper Schmeichel and Danny Simpson are set to be offered new contracts by Leicester City as they look to fend off interest from their Premier League rivals.

Kasper, son of Danish great Peter, has a growing list of admirers and Foxes boss Claudio Ranieri is eager to offer improved terms in a bid to keep one of his top stars.

The shot-stopper has been in fine form this season and his efforts have not gone unnoticed - namely from Manchester United and Tottenham.

The Champions League-chasing duo have cast an eye over the 29-year-old as uncertainty still surrounds the futures of David de Gea and to an extent, Hugo Lloris.

Schmeichel, however, is expected to stay put at the King Power Stadium as Leicester channel all their efforts into making Champions League football, as reported by the Sun.

Simpson, 29, has been with Leicester since they gained promotion back to the top-flight in 2014 and has been instrumental in the Foxes rise to the summit of English football.

The former Manchester and Newcastle United full-back's efforts have been relatively overlooked for large parts of the campaign but his work rate and commitment are now becoming recognised.

It's widely expected Simpson will put pen to paper and continue his unlikely quest for Premier League glory under the stewardship of Ranieri.

The same can be said of Schmeichel as its very likely he'll turn down the advances of the Premier League big-boys - for now.

Nonetheless, the duo will be eager to follow in the footsteps of star man Jamie Vardy. The 18-goal striker signed a new deal last week which will keep him at the club until 2019.
