Arsenal and Newcastle United are keen on Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, according to a report.

Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel is reportedly being tracked by Premier League admirers with his contract due to expire at the end of the season.

The Dane was the subject of three failed bids from Hull City in the summer, but The Mirror reports that the Foxes expect him to leave should they fail to secure promotion to the top flight.

Arsenal and Newcastle United have been mooted as likely destinations, as Arsene Wenger and Alan Pardew look for backup options to Wojciech Szczesny and Tim Krul respectively.

Schmeichel - son of Manchester United great Peter - started his career at Manchester City, but was pushed out of the team by Joe Hart.

He made his international debut for Denmark in their 6-0 win over Malta in the last World Cup qualifier.
