Kasper Schmeichel leaves Leicester City for Nice after 11years

Leicester City captain Kasper Schmeichel has left the club after 11 years and joined Ligue 1 side Nice.
The goalkeeper, 35, made 479 appearances for the Foxes after signing from Leeds, winning the Premier League, FA Cup and Community Shield.
Schmeichel was also part of the side that won the Championship in 2013-14.
He follows Aaron Ramsey to Nice after the Welshman, 31, also joined the French club following the termination of his contract at Juventus.
Schmeichel, capped 84 times by Denmark, had been given permission to leave Leicester.
Leicester are the only club in Europe’s top five leagues not to have signed a player this summer – and manager Brendan Rodgers admitted they had to manage their finances carefully.
