Schmeichel has been the subject of bids from Premier League newcomers Hull this summer and rumours surfaced on Sunday night that the Denmark international had asked to leave the King Power Stadium in order to speed up a protracted move to the Tigers.

But the 26-year-old has told his followers on Twitter: "Contrary to reports I have never put a transfer request in and won't be."

Schmeichel has one year remaining on his contract with Leicester for whom he has made over 100 appearances since signing from Leeds for an undisclosed fee in June 2011.
