Two senior goalkeepers are what we have seen leavnig so far. Eldin Jakupovic was released earlier on and today Leicester officially confirm the move of Kasper Schmeichel to Nice.

This ends a long relationship between the two parties. Kasper Schmeichel will forever be a legend at the club being transferred from Leeds in 2011 and arriving under the Sven Goran Eriksson regime at the club.

He had seen a life of almost everything in English football before his move to Leicester. Playing for Darlington, Cardiff, Bury and Coventry in different tiers of the football league. He had also been given his debut in Premier League by Svennis during the days both had a life at Man City.

He was one of few still at the club from that fantastic 2015/16 squad that managed to win Premier League and of course captain from start in the FA Cup final vs. Chelsea as we all remember that fantastic 1-0 win.

We had seen comments earlier from Kasper that he had thoughts of other options after the season, but could not really see that a transfer would happen and hoped for him to sign a new one year deal at the club.

But of course at 35 and playing eleven years at one place you might like to try something else. He had a dream of playing in Champions League with a club on the continent, but must have settled at least with a challenge in Europe, which will be very likely season in and season out at Nice.

We have seen grand goalkeepers such as Gordon Banks, Peter Shilton and Mark Wallington leave at different times during their careers after a long life at the club and of course Kasper Schmeichel will be up there alongside those three other greats and even above with the record of most international caps for Leicester representing Denmark 84 times during his years at this football club.

He also holds the record of League appearances for a goalkeeper ending his total tally of official games on 414, two more than Mark Wallington. Schmeichel is also the record holder of total appearances in all competitions, setting his tally to 479.

As fellow Scandinavians and Leicester supporter TCF wish Kasper all the best and hopefully he will continue to deliver top performances for Nice.

All the best Kasper, wish you well.
