Schmeichel happy at Leicester

Created on 27 Oct., 2012 3:10 PM GMT

Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel insists he is happy at the club, despite rumours linking him with a move to Real Madrid.

Leicester are setting the pace in the Championship, and the Danish shot-stopper has played a large part in helping Nigel Pearson's side boast the second-best defensive record in the league.

But, despite that form reportedly catching the attention of Jose Mourinho as he searches for an understudy to Iker Casillas, Schmeichel has denied suggestions he wants to leave.

"Being mentioned in the same sentence as Real Madrid is an honour, but that's as far as I've heard," Schmeichel told Sky Sports.

"People have been calling me and texting me but I'm not focusing on that. I'm very happy here where I'm playing week in, week out and can't ask for more than that."
