Leeds United have let some talent slip through their grasp in recent years, and Kasper Schmeichel is a name which should be near the top of that list.
It would be a frustration for Leeds fans which would be more understandable if Schmeichel had left on his own terms and not been pushed out of the club, but the opposite was true.
The BBC reported after Leeds accepted an offer from Leicester for £1 million in 2011, Schmeichel's comments: "It is with great disappointment that I have learned that Leeds United have accepted an offer from Leicester.
"I was enjoying being a Leeds United player and was looking forward to winning promotion this season with the club," he said.
"I have spoken to the manager Simon Grayson and he has made it clear to me, that, in spite of having played well for him, this is something he believes is a good deal for Leeds United."
Just like the far more substantial sale of Ross McCormack to Fulham, the deal has not left Leeds any better off from a sporting perspective, as continual change in management leaves the club back at square one.
Schmeichel last night was starring as Leicester beat Chelsea to climb above Manchester City and Arsenal to go back to the top of the Premier League, and it is appearing very much the case that being sold by Leeds was the best thing that could have happened for him, even if he did not realise it at the time.
