Leeds United chairman Ken Bates has warned goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel that he has no future at the club.

Leicester City have seen a bid for the 24-year-old Dane accepted by Leeds, much to the player's disappointment.

And Bates has confirmed the club are already in the market for goalkeeping replacements.

He said in the Yorkshire Evening Post: "We've decided that we're going to sign two new goalkeepers and Kasper will not be first choice.

"Now he has a decision to make. He either accepts that he's out of the limelight for a year or he goes to Leicester or another club that comes in for him. We will be moving on."

Meanwhile, Fede Bessone is to report for Leeds' pre-season training, despite the left-back's future at Elland Road looking uncertain following a difficult season at the club.

His agent, Peter Smith, said: "He'll be training at Leeds until something else happens.

"He's got two years left on his contract and his next move needs to be the right one. As things stand, he's still a Leeds player."
