Schmeichel enjoying life at Foxes

Kasper Schmeichel is happy at Leicester amid reports linking the goalkeeper with a summer move away from the King Power Stadium.

Schmeichel has been a stand-out performer in what has been a disappointing season for the Foxes, who were promotion favourites at the start of the campaign but have fallen short of even a play-off spot.

Recent reports claim he is being closely watched by Champions League chasers Tottenham and Bundesliga side Schalke. But the 25-year-old Dane, who joined Leicester in a £1million move from Leeds last summer, dismissed the speculation and feels at home in the east midlands.

"I have been linked with so many clubs during my career and I take absolutely no notice of that stuff. It is all paper talk to me," said former Manchester City trainee Schmeichel. "Papers will talk, but I am contracted here and I like being here. I feel very settled here.

"I am very happy here. It has been, on a personal level, one of the most enjoyable seasons of my career, and I really enjoy being here. I have a great professional life here. The training ground is amazing and we have some great coaches and manager.

"I enjoy coming in every day and training with (goalkeeping coach) Mike Stowell and the other lads. They are a good set of lads and that is all you can ask for. It is, for me, a very enjoyable time in my life."
