Picture of the 1.89 m (6 ft 2 in) tall Danish goalkeeper of Leicester City

Born in Copenhagen, the Danish keeper started his youth career at G.D. Estoril Praia of Portugal, a Portuguese sporting club based in Lisbon at the age of 14. After spending a year in the Portuguese capital he'd move to Manchester, where he signed a long term contract with Manchester City, which covered schoolboy, scholar and professional terms. During his time with Manchester City he spent most of his time playing away on loan, there were spells with League 2 sides Darlington and Bury, Scottish club Falkirk, and Championship outfits Cardiff City and Coventry City. After 5 years at Manchester City with only 8 appearances to show for it the keeper decided to make his next move permanent. In August 2009 he signed for League 2 side Notts County, this would be a giant step down from Manchester City but he'd play regular first team football without having his spells abruptly ended against his wishes which had previously been the case when he was out on loan. The keeper was an overwhelming success with The Magpies, in 43 League Two appearances he kept 24 clean sheets and conceded only 24 goals to help his club win the League Two trophy and gain promotion to Football League One. He would be on the move again after Notts County failed to pay his wages and would sign for Leeds United the following season. He made 37 appearances in the Championship and kept 9 clean sheets to finish in 7th position in the table with Leeds United. In 2011 The Big Dane would sign for Leicester City, after being on the move for the better part of half a decade he had finally found a place to call home. Establishing himself as The Fox's first choice goalkeeper he completed all 46 games of the 2011-12, 2012-13 and 2013-14 Championship season, keeping 14 clean sheets a piece during the first two and 18 in the later. Leicester City would win the Championship in the 2013-14 season with 102 points to secure promotion to the Premier League. His first Premier League campaign was spent battling relegation and injuries, he played in 24 games and kept 7 clean sheets as the club survived relegation to finish in 14th position. The written word will forever fail to describe what Leicester City would go on the achieve in the 2015-16 season, The Big Dane would play his role (keeping 15 clean sheets in 38 games conceding less than a goal game) as a part of a team that would transform from relegation battlers to Premier League Champions, forever edging their names in the annals of footballing folklore. Since then he has made 76 appearances for the Foxes in all competitions keeping 23 clean sheets.
