OGC Nice confirmed Wednesday the acquisition of goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel from Leicester City for an undisclosed sum.

"Viking Coming," the Ligue 1 side said in a post on social media alluding to the 35-year-old Danish international's Scandinavian heritage.

Nice, who finished fifth last season, were in the market for a keeper to replace Walter Benitez, who left the French Riviera earlier this summer for PSV Eindhoven.
