Kasper Schmeichel's Nice future in doubt after less than 12 months with Leicester legend to be allowed to leave | The Sun

NICE will allow Kasper Schmeichel to leave the club this summer, according to reports.

Schmeichel, 36, joined the Ligue 1 side in a shock transfer from Leicester last summer after an 11-year spell at the King Power.

He has kept 11 clean sheets in 34 Ligue 1 appearances so far this season, helping the club to achieve the second-best defensive record in the division.

But despite his efforts, Schemichel’s future at the Allianz Riviera is in doubt.

According to French outlet L'Equipe, Nice will not stand in the way of the goalkeeper if he decides leave the club this summer.

Several members of the squad are said to be growing annoyed by Schmeichel's training methods.

Earlier this month, the Dane admitted that he would be open to a return to Leicester.

During an appearance on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football, he said: "I don’t think my chapter with Leicester will ever end.

"I still say we, the club will always be a part [of me].

"I came to Leicester as a young man needing a home and needing somewhere to be accepted for who I was and not for what everyone else thought I should be.

"Leicester gave me that, and even after 11 years there’s still something unwritten for me there."

Schmeichel joined Leicester from Manchester City in 2011 and played an integral role in some of the club's most significant moments.

He helped the Foxes earn promotion from the Championship in 2014 before contributing to the club's incredible Premier League title win two years later.

The goalkeeper also won the FA Cup and the Community Shield during his spell at the King Power Stadium.

But in his absence they are now facing relegation, with the Foxes 19th in the table with two games remaining.
