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.

Schmeichel follows in the footsteps of former Arsenal, Juventus and Rangers midfielder Aaron Ramsey, who moved to the south of France after his Juventus contract was torn up.

News of Schmeichel’s departure comes amid speculation linking James Maddison, Wesley Fofana, Harvey Barnes and Youri Tielemans with the Leicester exit door, while the reports have been compounded by the Foxes’ failure to make any summer signings.
