Leeds United goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel is to open contract talks with Leicester City in the next few days according to his agent Tony Lymn.
Schmeichel was told on Monday by Leeds that they had accepted a bid from Leicester, much to the keeper`s surprise, who admitted in a statement on twitter he was looking forward to helping Leeds push for promotion next season.
Now that the player and his agent know the situation, negotiations with Leicester can begin. Lymn speaking in the Leicester Mercury said, 'We will probably open a dialogue with Leicester in the next few days.'
Lymn now expects other clubs to become involved now that they know that Schmeichel is available, 'We are aware there will be interest because he is a good player. We must now consider what to do and think it through,' he continued.
Leeds boss Simon Grayson has said that Leeds have already agreed a deal to bring in a goalkeeper, but with them currently without a recognised goalkeeper, having already released Shane Higgs this summer it`s not known whether he is a replacement for Schmeichel or Higgs.
Vital Leeds is now available on both facebook and twitter, so if you are that way inclined and more importantly understand all this new fangled dangled stuff, feel free to watch us, poke us or whatever else you are meant to do there!
