Leicester City have confirmed goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel has departed the club to join Ligue 1 side Nice on a free transfer.

The 35-year-old leaves the King Power Stadium after 11 years, racking up 478 appearances for Leicester in all competitions and, perhaps most importantly, playing a crucial role in the Foxes' famous Premier League title triumph in 2016.

“Throughout his time with us and particularly as a captain and vice-captain, Kasper has always been a player willing to stand up and take responsibility, leading the team with distinction," said chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha.
