TRANSFER UPDATES: Schmeichel signs for Nice, Chelsea confirm deal with Marc Cucurella

Kasper Schmeichel has ended his 11-year stay at Leicester by signing for Nice while the Foxes are yet to have made a summer signing.

The 35-year-old Denmark international goalkeeper completed his medical with the Ligue 1 club after an agreement was reached between the clubs.

Speaking at the weekend, Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers admitted Schmeichel would be allowed to end his 11-year stay at the King Power Stadium if he found a new club.

Foxes captain Schmeichel has been a mainstay throughout the most successful period in the club’s history, winning the Championship and promotion in 2013/14, the Premier League title in 2015/16, and the FA Cup and Community Shield in 2021.
