Kasper Schmeichel could be on his way to OUT in Leicester, with Foxes seeing Robert Sanchez of Brighton as Denmark’s long-term replacement after the elimination of the long-serving captain for a 5: 1 victory at Watford.
- Kasper Schmeichel will return to the Leicester vs Chelsea team on Thursday
- But Foxes No. 1 faces an uncertain future alongside Brendan Rodgers

Kasper Schmeichel will return to the Leicester team for Thursday’s game against Chelsea, but faces an uncertain future as the club looks for Dan’s long-term successor.
The club captain was left out in favor of Danny Ward for last year ‘s 5: 1 victory at Watford and Sportsmail understands that Foxes are big admirers of Brighton goalkeeper Robert Sanchez.
Sanchez has three years left until the end of his current contract, and Brighton is likely to place a huge prize on the Spaniard, which could keep him out of reach of all the richest clubs this summer.

Leicester is not one of them and will probably have to sell the players to give Chief Brendan Rodgers the reinforcements he wants.
Schmeichel has been in Leicester since 2011, when it was signed for just £ 1 million. During his time at the club, he won the Leicester Premier League, FA Cup and Community Shield and also made it to the quarterfinals of the Champions League and the semi-finals of the European Conference League.
This 35-year-old is one of the club’s best-earning players and has 12 months to go. Earlier this season, he admitted that he could look for a new challenge before the end of his career.

Rodgers said, “He’s very happy here. Of course, he naturally gets to the age when he sees the finish line a little bit, but in my conversations with him he is very happy.
“She has a year to go. It is important for him and for us, he is in the best condition he can be.
“Danny Ward and I saw that there was a challenge, but I think he did.” [Schmeichel] he wants to be here. I think he wants to continue fighting here and in his career and so far he has had a fantastic career.
“The plan was for Kasper to play the last two matches. I told Kasper he was going to play against Chelsea and Southampton. “
