Kasper Schmeichel Leicester City
Kasper joined Leicester from Leeds United for an undisclosed fee in June 2011. During the 2011–12 season, he played a total of 52 games overall, making 17 clean sheets and saving four penalties. His performances in the 2011–12 season earned him the club’s Player of the Year and Players’ Player of the Year awards on 30 April. Kasper’s outstanding performances were further rewarded when he was called up to Denmark’s Euro 2012 squad.
The 2012/13 campaign again proved to be one full of stellar performances from the Dane, whose saves rescued the Foxes on countless occasions – his wonder stop against Blackburn at King Power Stadium in February 2013 earning him the Champagne Moment at the end of season awards.
In 2013/14, Kasper’s consistent performances saw him again named in the PFA Championship Team of the Season as an ever-present, resulting in a number of clubs seeking his signature in the summer.
In the Premier League, Schmeichel continued to excel in 2014/15. After missing several months with a foot injury, he returned to the side in fantastic form to play his part in the team’s survival.

Kasper Schmeichel News: Liverpool ‘clear favourites’ to sign Kasper Schmeichel after World Cup heroics
Jurgen Klopp is on the hunt for a new stopper after Loris Karius’ Champions League nightmare.
A string of keepers including Roma’s Alisson and Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak have been linked.
Schmeichel has previously been on Liverpool’s radar and could re-emerge as a target after his heroics in Denmark’s 1-0 win against Peru at the World Cup.
BetStars believe that could happen and have priced him at evens to move to Anfield.
BetStars spokesman Ian Marmion told Starsport: “Liverpool have been priced at evens to be Kasper Schmeichel’s next club, after the Danish keeper put in a stand-out performance against Peru in Denmark’s opening World Cup game.
“Jurgen Klopp may look to source another goalkeeper as a priority with Loris Karius’ future at the club uncertain.
“The Reds are the clear favourites to sign the Leicester City player, with Premier League rivals Arsenal the second favourites at 3/1.
“Italian giants Juventus and Chelsea are next in line for Schmeichel at 4/1 and 5/1 respectively to lure the Dane to their clubs.
“Manchester United (8/1) and PSG (12/1) are the outsiders for Schmeichel and would only need the 27-year-old to provide cover for David de Gea and Kevin Trapp respectively.”
Liverpool legend John Barnes recently told Starsport the Anfield faithful should back Karius if Klopp decides to stick with the German.
He said: “The harmony at Liverpool is so good and the trust we have in Jurgen Klopp is so good but if he decides to keep Karius and play him, the fans will back him.
“He didn’t have a particularly good Champions League final and you don’t want to make mistakes in the Champions League final, but it happened.
“If Jurgen Klopp supports him, I’m sure the Liverpool fans will get behind him and support him.”
