Leicester City keeper Kasper Schmeichel has angered the club’s owners by trying to manufacture a move out of the King Power outfit this summer.
The 30-year-old Danish international has been in decent form this season, after helping the Foxes to the Premier League title in the last campaign. He lost a couple of months this season through injury, but is now back to being the first-choice shot stopper under Craig Shakespeare at Leicester City.
His consistency has seen him linked with an exit, with a number of Premier League clubs in need of a man between their sticks this summer.
It is an offer Schmeichel will jump at taking up, but he may face resistance, as it has now been revealed that the Leicester City hierarchy are not ready to let him go at the end of the season.
Schmeichel signed a five-year deal that made him the highest earner at the club at the start of the ongoing campaign, and he will have four years left on his deal at the end of it. He has already been told that he will not be sold this summer, but it is now understood that he is trying to engineer a move away from the club nonetheless.
Schmeichel has no release clause in his contract, and Leicester are not ready to let him go, as they do not want another year of trying to fight relegation at the King Power Stadium.
But according to Mirror, the goalkeeper is making all efforts to swap clubs this summer, and this has angered the club’s Thai owners, who feel let down.
