Kasper Schmeichel nears return to action

Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel is closing in on a return to action following a foot injury.

Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson has revealed that goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel will be available for selection in the near future.

The Dane has been sidelined since early December with a broken foot.

However, having recently returned to training, Pearson has confirmed that the 28-year-old will be ready to make his comeback in a "week or so".

"We're more or less a fully fit squad. Kasper Schmeichel will be available in a week or so too," he told reporters.

"He's been back in full training, so really we're not doing too bad."

Schmeichel has made 14 appearances for the Foxes this season.
