Leeds United have made goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel their first signing after gaining promotion to the Championship.
The 23-year-old Dane joins the Elland Road side on a free transfer after mutually agreeing to terminate his contract with former club Notts County.
Schmeichel played in 43 League Two games for the Magpies in a promotion-winning campaign last term, but the club could no longer afford his contract and it was decided he could leave.
He was named PFA League Two Player of the Year and was delighted to sign a two-year deal with the Whites.
"There wasn't a lot of decision making to do," he told LUTV. "I've been talking to clubs, and when the question was raised about interest from Leeds I said yes.
"I've grown up in England, know a lot about English football, and I know Leeds is one of the biggest clubs in the country.
"There were other opportunities, but Leeds has everything, it's a massive club and has a massive fanbase.
"The infrastructure is here. Look at the training ground, the fanbase and the players. I think everything is in place. There's a great manager here and I can't wait to get started.
"I hope that we will do really well and get promoted, but the Championship is a weird and different league. Look at Blackpool last season, who came from nowhere and got promoted.
"I hope we start well and get some momentum going."
Schmeichel has had previous loan spells at Darlington, Bury, Falkirk, Cardiff and Coventry while under contract at Premier League outfit Manchester City.
The former Denmark Under-21 international played eight times in the top-flight for City, and will compete for the No.1 jersey at Leeds with Shane Higgs.
Leeds manager Simon Grayson was pleased to secure the services of Schmeichel after releasing fellow Danish stopper Casper Ankergren.
"After releasing Casper Ankergren, we wanted to bring another goalkeeper in, and Kasper has had an excellent season at Notts County," he told the club's official website.
"There were a lot of Premier League clubs interested in him, but he wanted to come here.
"He's got fantastic ability, he's a winner, and he is determined to take this club forward.
"He has some fantastic qualities and he will provide us with good competition for places which is what we want."
Kasper's father Peter was a famous stalwart for Leeds' bitter rivals Manchester United, but the young keeper revealed his dad advised him to move to the West Yorkshire club.
He added: "As soon as Leeds came in he asked me what I wanted to do and he said he couldn't agree more. He said it was the best club to be at now."
I think this is a fantastic signing for leeds. I believed we needed a new keeper and what a keeper he is! we need to buy a new striker now beckford's gone and maybe strengthen the midfield and i believe that we could go back to were Leeds United belong. The Premier League.

Good luck to Kasper with Leeds, he did a fabulous job for Notts County last season - maybe you could loan him back to us next season if you want to keep him in tip top condition (just a thought). Anyway good luck to Leeds for collecting a real team player - bit of a chip off the old block. To Ian C (Wigan supporter) it could be said your pop at Notts County sounded a little like *Sour Grapes* after our cup win over you - but I agree with your view on the FA not checking thoroughly enough as they did in fact ratify the Munto takeover at Notts as fit and proper - but oh what a crazy kind of chaos season it was and topped off with being champions to join Leeds in Div 1 - I just hope we sign the type of player to help us stay up.

Sad to see angerkren go as i thought he had a decent season. Good to see young casper signing in as i think he will be a keeper to watch in the next few seasons. Defo need a natural goalscorer now becks has gone earnshaw maybe,and a left back with the possibility of another central midfielder(never rated doyle sorry) and a back up for naylor as he,s a bit slow on the pace sometimes. Other than that(he says) looking forward to next season in the championship to see how it goes!! ps: dont play long ball if you haven,t chosen the formation to back it up simon!! remember swindon at home! nuff said!.

Not a bad signing although i think releasing casper ankergren after him having a very good season for us was a bit of a surprize but simon grayson does seem to be trying to build his own squad and kasper schmeichel is at a good age where he can keep learning, shane higgs will have a couple more seasons left in him but this is kaspers chance to learn off him as shane does have about 400 professional appearances to his name. with jermaine beckford now gone we definately need a natural goalscorer to replace him, although i think luciano becchio, mike grella and davide somma could have a good season coming up, a central defensive midfielder is needed unless we sign doyle again, a good centreback to backup richard naylor and patrick kisnorbo is needed. i said once this season had ended that we needed minimum 1 striker, 1 midfielder and 1 defender, and getting 1 keeper in aswell wont do any harm. i think consolidation in championship is key this next season so any finish from 12th or above would be solid and then the season after we can then think about promotion to where Leeds United belong, the premier league!

Kasper Schmeichel is going to be a top keeper in 3-4 years. Hopefully will be part of an excellent spine with Paddy, Killer and a top striker, maybe Hooper or bring back Healy. Also heard a rumour of Tom Soares joining on loan with view to buy. Prem in 2 years!! Marching On Together!!

Terrific purchase and a complete steal! Its good to see the management aiming high again. I just hope they pay attention to the wages this time and dont spend beyond means.
Posted 22:07 28th May 2010
great buy he is a good keeper , just need to bring in another great defender and mid , unless beckford goes l heard talk of hulse , he would be quite a replacement he is a proven goal scorer
Posted 09:34 28th May 2010
great signing. shows the rest we mean business
Posted 22:47 27th May 2010
Fantastic signing for LEEDS hope he can be as good as his dad.keep up the good work Mr Grayson and bring in some more quality MOT
Posted 21:59 27th May 2010
This is a super signing for Leeds and hopefully it will be the first of many top class players joining the club. Personally I think we need a left back, centre half, midfielder and of course a forward if Beckford goes. Simon Grayson is a clever manager and he's well aware of what's needed if we are to progress to the ultimate goal of The Premiership.
Posted 21:48 27th May 2010
Good first signing, keep em comin Grayson!
Posted 20:29 27th May 2010
Wow, Kasper Schmeichel at Leeds United. They've got themselves a little gem there in signing him. I'd have loved him to come to a Premier League club again to see how his skills match up to some of the other young'uns we have (like Joe Hart) but I think he will do a fantastic job at Leeds, and if they win promotion back to the Premier League (fingers crossed) then he will truly deserve it. Good job Leeds: you're going in the right direction at a good pace.
Posted 19:31 27th May 2010
good signing leeds, now lets get sum more outfield players
Posted 19:13 27th May 2010
Notts Co is yet another example of so-called rich foreigners buying clubs without any idea of owning a club and leading it into financial ruins....Liverpool, Man Utd, Portsmouth etc Everyone expects an Abramovic or the Man City guys but in reality it rarely ever works out. Besides, Man City, with all the money still can't attract the best players and always pay way over the odds for average players.... Santa Cruz, Robinho, etc. And both clubs are going through managers like they are going out of fashion. The FA and the Premiership have a lot to answer for. They only see the £££ and therefore they overlook doing a proper financial check.

What a signing this lad has a big future im glad Leeds are going to be part of it, a few more signing like this and Leeds are 1 step closer to the Premier League Simon Grayson is a Legend come on Leeds bring on the Championship favorites to win it 2010/2011 season MOT.
Posted 18:21 27th May 2010
welcome to the club Kasper Schmeichel and what a fantastic signing for the club
Posted 18:04 27th May 2010
What a great signing for Leeds United,i haven't been this excited about a new player for a long long time, Kasper turned down a lot of clubs to join Leeds, Really cant wait for the season to come along now, maybe even Mr Beckford might sign that new Contract.
Posted 18:00 27th May 2010
Good piece of business signing a young promising goalkeeper on a free transfer and giving him a 3 year contract. He has had some good experience so far and will only get better especially if he is anywhere near his old man Also, I think re-signing Rob Hulse again will be a good move. I like him when played for us previously and he scored some good goals and gave/gives 100% when he plays.. This is step in the right direction even if Beckford decides to stay. More competiion and cover for the Championship as we will need it. Why not Bill Sharp as well?
Posted 17:25 27th May 2010
Kasper Schmeichel is a great player! I'm really happy that we got him. I wasn't to sure at first tho if we where going to get him because there was a lot of clubs interested in him from the prem and championship...also outside the english league. I must say that Casper Ankergren did really well for us and i hope a good club gets him because he really is a quality goalkeeper.
Posted 17:15 27th May 2010
Not a bad goalie, needs to improve on his overall positional play before he claims the No1 shirt. I fear too much will be expected of Leeds next season - when realistically we should be happy with a top10 finish. Then go for it in 2011/12 season.
