LUFC Schmeichel disappointed by transfer news

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.
