Kasper Schmeichel set to sign for R.S.C. Anderlecht

The veteran goalkeeper was released by Nice last week after just one year at the Ligue 1 club.

According to Fabrizio Romano, he is nearing a rapid return to football after negotiating terms with Belgian club Anderlecht.

Schmeichel, 36, is expected to sign a one-year contract within the next 24 hours.

The shot-stopper had been linked with a transfer to Celtic, which would have reunited him with his former Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers.

Last month, Chelsea was connected with a bid for the Premier League champion.

Schmeichel appeared in 36 games for OGC Nice in Ligue 1 last season.

But, after joining from Paris Saint-Germain, he was replaced by Marcin Bulka at the start of the next season.

Schmeichel spent 11 years in Leicester before moving to France, and he captained the club from 2020 to 2022.

He won the Premier League in 2016 and the FA Cup four years later, after assisting Leicester in their promotion to the top flight in 2014.

Kasper Schmeichel made 479 appearances for Leicester and previously played for Manchester City, Leeds, and Notts County.
