He was a crucial part of Leicester City's title winning campaign last season – a campaign that will be talked about for years to come. His determination and drive to succeed make him an excellent addition to our roster of players. Our players are at the heart of everything we do, and we're looking forward to working with Kasper to further develop our range of goalkeeper products."
