​Schmeichel gushes over Leicester youngsters

Leicester City's Kasper Schmeichel is delighted with club's young players development.

Ben Chilwell and Demarai Gray have both received an England call-up after good showings for the Foxes. James Maddison has also impressed after joining from Norwich this summer.

"We have some good English youngsters like Demarai and 'Chilly', and then James Maddison who has absolutely in no way looked out of place in the Premier League," Schmeichel said.

"It is always a difficult step up from Championship to the Premier League and he has just taken to it like a duck to water.

"I have been really impressed with all of them. They are going to play a big part for us, not just now but in the future."
