Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare is confident goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel will be still be at the club next season.
The 30-year-old Denmark international, a key figure at the King Power Stadium, he has been linked with a move away this summer.
And Schmeichel has recently appointed a new agent to handle his affairs, prompting speculation he is looking to move on.
However, Shakespeare rejected such claims and, when asked if he thought Schmeichel would be a Leicester player next season, he said: “Yes I do. He’s in the form of his life.
“There’s been a lot of speculation this week, but he’s totally entitled to change his agent. What I would say is he has been very professional, his performances have shown that.
“He has a very strong character, and I expect him to carry on in the same way. I don’t feel the need to talk to him, because he’s perfectly entitled to change his agent when that contract comes to an end.”
