Leicester new boy Schmeichel disappointed at Leeds departure

Kasper Schmeichel says he is disappointed at being sold by Leeds United.

The 24-year old Danish goalkeeper will join Leicester City this week after the Whites accepted an offer from their Championship rivals but he is unhappy about the move.

"At the end of the season Leeds United and I both made a commitment to honour the last year of my contract and try to win promotion with Leeds United," he said.

"Therefore it is with great disappointment that I have learned that Leeds United have accepted an offer from Leicester.

"I want to put on record that I have never asked to leave Leeds United, nor did I reject an offer for a new contract, since one was never put to me.

"I was enjoying being a Leeds United player and was looking forward to winning promotion this season with the club.

"I have spoken to the manager Simon Grayson and he has made it clear to me, that, in spite of having played well for him, this is something he believes is a good deal for Leeds United.

"I have been put in a very difficult situation and will spend some time considering my options for my future."
