sport news Kasper Schmeichel keen for second taste of Europe at Leicester

When Leicester were crowned Premier League champions in 2016, there were fears that big clubs with bigger bank balances would pick off their players at will. They lost N’Golo Kante, but otherwise have done well.

Jamie Vardy was tied down to a new deal amid Arsenal interest and Manchester City have been made to wait for Riyad Mahrez.

This summer, it will start all over again, and Leicester’s latest transfer test could be keeping hold of their goalkeeper, Kasper Schmeichel.

Arsenal are about to search the market for a new No 1 and Liverpool are known to admire the Dane. Against Brighton on Saturday, 31-year-old Schmeichel showed why.

He produced a series of second-half stops and saved a Glenn Murray spot-kick in the 77th minute at 0-0. It means he has now saved three Premier League penalties — as many as his dad Peter did throughout his illustrious career.

It sparked Leicester into life as Vicente Iborra and Vardy scored in the 83rd and 96th minutes to secure a win that keeps them in the hunt for the Europa League.
