Leicester captain Schmeichel was a mainstay during the most successful period in the club’s history, winning the league title and promotion in 2013/14, the Premier League title in 2015/16 and the FA Cup.
The goalkeeper is following in the footsteps of former Arsenal, Juventus and Rangers midfielder Aaron Ramsey, who moved to France after his Juventus contract was terminated.
The 35-year-old Danish footballer signed a contract for three seasons. The transfer amount was one million euros, excluding bonuses.
News of Schmeichel’s departure comes amid speculation linking James Maddison, Wesley Fofan, Harvey Barnes and Youri Tielemans to Leicester’s exit door.
