The Tigers are looking for a new first-choice keeper following their promotion to the top flight.

Steve Bruce used loan signings in goal for much of last season with the likes of Ben Amos and David Stockdale, but he now wants to bring in a permanent number one.

And Schmeichel appears his first choice, as Bruce has now returned for a second bid - but Leicester have already shunned that offer.

Bruce is expected to return again for the 26-year-old, who joined Leicester from Leeds in 2011.

The Dane enjoyed an excellent campaign and was named in the Championship Team of the Season.

o is Jordan Ibe overqualified for this list or what? To be honest I was expecting to see his name, I thought he'd fit in perfectly. Maybe his name is too familiar? Because otherwise this list should be made for him. You could actually just insert his name & stats into the middle paragraph about Brandt and it would describe Ibe.
