Former Manchester United trainee goalkeeper Ron-Robert Zieler is in talks with Barclays Premier League champions Leicester.

The 27-year-old, who joined Hannover from United in 2010, has exercised an option in his contract that will allow him to leave the relegated Bundesliga club this summer.

His destination appears to be the King Power Stadium, where he will provide competition and support for Danish keeper Kasper Schmeichel as manager Claudio Ranieri looks to add numbers and experience to his Foxes squad ahead of a first ever Champions League campaign.

A statement published on Hannover's official website on Sunday read: "Ron-Robert Zieler has informed us that he will travel to meet English champions Leicester and hold contract talks with them. In addition, he will complete a medical while in England."

Zieler, who spent time on loan at Northampton while on Manchester United's books, was part of Germany's World Cup-winning squad in 2014 but did not make an appearance in Brazil. The Cologne-born keeper has made over 200 league appearances for Hannover.
