ESPN understands that Kasper Schmeichel has signed a new five year deal with Leicester City.
The shot-stopper, who helped the Foxes secure the Premier League title last season had been linked with a move away from the King Power Stadium, with Everton eyeing a move to secure his services.
However, he has committed himself to the East Midlands’ outfit and will be with them as they begin the defence of their crown next weekend.
Schmeichel began his career with Manchester City but made just ten appearances for them before being sold to Notts County while prior to his switch to Meadow Lane he had loan spells with Darlington, Bury, Falkirk, Cardiff City and Coventry City.
He moved to Leeds United in 2010 before being sold to Leicester a year later and he has so far racked up 220 appearances for them in all competitions, including all thirty-eight of their league games last season.
