Leicester keeper Zieler returns to Germany after failing to oust Schmeichel

Goal.com logo Goal.com 11-07-2017

Ron-Robert Zieler has left Leicester City after a frustrating Premier League campaign and returned to the Bundesliga with newly promoted Stuttgart.

Zieler joined then-champions Leicester from Hannover a year ago, but could not usurp Kasper Schmeichel as first choice under Claudio Ranieri or his successor Craig Shakespeare.

Shakespeare: Mahrez must perform

The Germany international made 13 appearances for the Foxes, the bulk of which came when Schmeichel suffered a broken hand in November.

He becomes Stuttgart's fifth signing since winning 2.Bundesliga, but is their most experienced to date.

He told Stuttgart's official website: "I am glad that the move to Stuttgart has been successful.

"The discussions with VfB officials were very convincing. It has made me believe that VfB can develop something and I would like to help."
