Kasper Schmeichel, 37, ‘lined up for Premier League return’ with Leicester rivals as title winner has low buy-out clause

KASPER SCHMEICHEL has been lined-up for a shock Premier League return with one of his former club’s biggest rivals.

The goalkeeper, who won the Premier League and FA Cup at Leicester City, ended his highly-successful 11-year spell with the Foxes in 2022 to join French side Nice.

But he left them after just one season to sign a 12-month contract for Belgian outfit Anderlecht after his deal in Ligue 1 was terminated.

Now Schmeichel, whose father Peter earned legendary status playing for Manchester United, could be heading back to England in a shock move.

That is according to the Daily Mail, who claim that “he has emerged as a potential option for Nottingham Forest if they are able to sign a goalkeeper in January”.

They state that the 37-year-old “would be open to returning” to our top-flight, despite Forest being East Midlands rivals to Leicester.

This update also claims that there “is a relatively low buy-out clause in his contract”.

And it also adds that “initial discussions between representatives have taken place”.

Forest were ready to finish the campaign with Matt Turner and Odysseas Vlachodimos as their two senior goalkeepers.

However, the recent form of USA international Turner has caused some concerns for new boss Nuno Espirito Santo.


But they must overcome a number of obstacles before they can bring in any new additions.

Forest are waiting to discover what punishment, which could be a points deduction, they receive after being charged with breaking Premier League spending rules.

They have signed 43 players since securing promotion 18 months ago and also now they must clear some out before others are brought in.

They have cancelled Andrey Santos’ season-long loan from Chelsea this month and agreed a £2.6m fee with Flamengo to sell them Brazilian midfielder Gustavo Scarpa.
