Reported United target comments on future: 'It would be wrong...'

Kasper Schmeichel for Leicester City

Leicester City's Kasper Schmeichel may have just won promotion, but he played down committing his future with the Foxes amid Manchester United interest.

The Foxes have now officially confirmed their place in the Premier League next season. Although, for Nigel Pearson, the hard work starts now.

Kasper Schmeichel along with 10 others, including Pearson himself, are out-of-contract at the end of the season. The uncertainty is unusual in itself because the players will soon be free to talk to other clubs, and at the minute, there is no guarantee of a deal at Leicester.

At the moment, the Danish goalkeeper seems to be in a position of power. He has recently been linked with a move to the club his dad reached legendary status at, and as a free-agent, he becomes a very attractive proposition.

Speaking of his future just days prior to Leicester City's promotion, the goalkeeper admitted he hadn't thought too much about his future, insisting he was just focused on promotion.

When asked by FourFourTwo magazine: 'Are you planning on returning to the Prem with Leicester? You've been linked with a number of big teams...'

The Foxes keeper played it cool, saying: 'First and foremost I hope we get promoted. I haven't given any thought to my future. It would be wrong to think too far ahead.'

The links to Manchester United could really be just be the tip of the iceberg as far as Schmeichel is concerned. His reputation, name and form will no-doubt attract many suitors across Europe, especially considering his contract situation.

The loss of Schmeichel would undoubtedly be a big blow for the Foxes, and would hurt their preparations for next season. In their current state, it wouldn't take much for the Foxes to at least consolidating in the Premier League, but if players leave, it could turn into a rebuilding job.
