Hull target Schmeichel signing

Premier League newcomers Hull City are trying to sign Kasper Schmeichel and have made two bids for the Leicester goalkeeper.

Hull manager Steve Bruce used on-loan goalkeepers, Fulham’s David Stockdale and Manchester United’s Ben Amos, for virtually all of the Tigers’ promotion campaign and has made recruiting a shot-stopper on a permanent contract a priority.

And Bruce’s former Manchester United team-mate Peter Schmeichel revealed that his son is Hull’s major target.

However, Hull’s opening offer for the younger Schmeichel, 26, was reportedly only £1.25 million while Leicester value the former Manchester City, Notts County and Leeds player at £4 million.

"There are several interested clubs," Schmeichel told Danish broadcaster DR. "Hull made two official offers and they have a great manager, Steve Bruce, who is one of my best friends.

"Steve has known Kasper since he was three years old and Kasper and [Bruce's son] Alex grew up together, so that is a fantastic story.

"But how it all ends up is up to Kasper, his agent and the clubs. It is not easy because he is playing at a club that does not want to sell him."

Schmeichel, capped once by Denmark, was named in the Championship PFA Team of the Year but Leicester, who were beaten by Watford in the Championship play-off semi-finals, were unable to secure a return to the top-flight.

Goalkeeper Mark Oxley signed a new contract with Hull last month, but he is seen as a deputy rather than the likely first choice.
