Kasper Schmeichel: 'I am very happy at Leicester City'

Kasper Schmeichel's form for Leicester City this season has prompted speculation that he could be on the radar of some Premier League clubs.

The Denmark international goalkeeper was named in the PFA Championship team of the season on Sunday, voted for by his fellow professionals, along with team-mate Wes Morgan.

Schmeichel said he has been pleased with his own form this season. And although the 26-year-old will be entering the final year of his contract next season, he insists he is enjoying life at the King Power Stadium.

"I don't pay any attention to speculation," he said. "I have another year on my contract and I am very happy here. I like being here. The club has been very good to me and the fans have been great to me.

"I genuinely enjoy coming into training every day. We have a great training facility and good coaches who make the day enjoyable. They make sure we work hard but with a smile on our face.

"I genuinely do drive to training every day very happy."

Defeat to Watford on Friday has left City's play-off hopes hanging by the thinnest of threads and Schmeichel admits this season has been a rollercoaster ride.

"Emotionally, it has been very up and down," he said. "The first half of the season we played very well and the second half we haven't really been able to get things going in the same gear as we did before.

"Personally, I am happy enough with my form. For me, being a goalkeeper is about being consistent and I feel I have played very consistently this season."

Schmeichel admits if City do fail to make the play-offs it will come as a crushing blow to everyone at the club.

"There is no secret we have been going for promotion this season," he said. "The Championship is a difficult league but we should have done better than we have done."

Championship team of the season: Kaspar Schmeichel (City), Kieran Trippier (Burnley), Wes Morgan (City), Mark Hudson (Cardiff), Wayne Bridge (Brighton), Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace), Thomas Ince (Blackpool), Peter Whittingham (Cardiff), Yannick Bolasie (Crystal Palace), Glenn Murray (Crystal Palace), Matej Vydra (Watford).
