LUFC Schmeichel disappointed by transfer news

Leeds United soon to be sold goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel is disappointed that Leeds have accepted a bid from Leicester City for his services.

Speaking on his twitter page: @kpschmeichel1, Schmeichel released the following statement:

I am putting out this statement now, but let me be clear that I have not signed with any other club, and as far as I am concerned I am still a Leeds United player.

At the end of the season Leeds United and I both made a commitment to honour the last year of my contract and try to win promotion with Leeds United.

Therefore, it is with great disappointment that I have learned that Leeds United have accepted an offer from Leicester.

I want to put on record that I have never asked to leave the Leeds United, nor did I reject an offer for a new contract, since one was never put to me.
I was enjoying being a Leeds United player and was looking forward to winning promotion this season with the club.

I have spoken to the manager Simon Grayson and he has made it clear to me, that, in spite of having played well for him, this is something he believes is a good deal for Leeds United.

I have been put in a very difficult situation and will spend some time considering my options for my future.


Leeds released a statement earlier today to announce that they had accepted a bid from Leicester City.

Manager Simon Grayson said that the deal was in the best interest of the club and that Schmeichel`s agent had made it clear that his player would not be signing a new deal, when his current deal runs out at the end of next season.

This news as the stench of Bates all over it and he's got his 'yes man' Grayson to make up the excuses. I honestly can't believe we have done this without having someone else lined up, obviously on a free
