New Premier League deal for Rotherham United loan ace Dan Iversen

ROTHERHAM United loan goalkeeper Dan Iversen is rated so highly by parent club Leicester City that the Premier League big boys have rewarded him with a new long-term contract.

The young Dane, who has been a major reason behind the Millers' rise to the top of League One, is on a season-long at AESSEAL New Stadium and is regarded by Foxes staff as the eventual successor to Kasper Schmeichel.

Leicester have given Iversen a five-and-a-half-year deal taking him through to the summer of 2025.

The 22-year-old has missed only one league match for Rotherham: the 2-1 defeat at Doncaster Rovers in September when he was called into the senior Denmark squad.

Iversen said: "It feels really, really good to sign a contract with Leicester. I’ve spent four years already at the club so, of course, I’m really happy about it as I'm proud to be a Leicester  player.

"I'm enjoying my time at Rotherham this season too. They're a really good club to play for, I’ve been happy with my performances and I’m excited for what’s to come."

There is a good chance that if the Millers reach the Championship they will try to keep the shot-stopper for a second year.
