Smithies: It's Amazing To Be Here

New Leicester City goalkeeper Alex Smithies sits down with LCFC TV in Seagrave to take stock on his move to the Foxes.

“I’ve played against quite a lot of the lads so I’m sure I’ll fit in well. I’ve played a lot of games in my career, the majority of them in the Championship, and my role here might be a little different. I might be more of a team player, supporting and being ready to step in as soon as I’m asked to.

“It’s up to me to push the lads as far as I can, try and get in the team, and make sure I’m a good character around the place who can help the lads."

He will now link-up with his new team-mates as they continue their 2022/23 Premier League campaign.
