It has seemed a matter of time of late, although Kasper Schmeichel’s potential exit from Leicester did threaten to throw a spanner in the works. It always felt as though the fact that he would be able to stay in London by joining the Cottagers would be a plus.
Leno lost his place as Arsenal’s number one last term, and could even be as low as third-choice at present following the arrival of Matt Turner, but that isn’t to take away from what he has given the club since joining from Bayer Leverkusen, nor does it take anything away from his ability.
Leno is a top goalkeeper, but his time in north London has run it’s course now.
