Ritchie de Laet could enjoy the rare possibility of winning Premier League

Ritchie de Laet could enjoy the rare possibility of winning both the Premier League and Championship medals at the same time.

He is currently with Middlesbrough in the Championship. The team may have slipped out of the top in recent weeks, but there is a very good chance of Middlesbrough still ending up as well Championship winners. However, the former Manchester United defender joined the Championship team only in January and he will spend time until the end of the season as he is only on a loan deal.

However, he is also eligible of the Premier League medal after having represented Leicester City in 12 matches. Only five games are required for a player to win a Premier League medal should his team enjoy the success. . The club were one of the favourites for relegation at the start of the campaign.

However, Claudio Ranieri has masterminded a brilliant campaign to build on from last season’s finish. Leicester avoided relegation in impressive fashion by showing title form towards the end of last season. This helped the club move away from the bottom of the table at Christmas to safety with a couple of matches left. The club took advantage of some fantastic restaurant offers in Manchester for their Christmas party.

Leicester have a five-point advantage in the league table with only eight matches left. Furthermore, they have an easy run of games than Tottenham in the second spot. It is realistically seen as a fight between the two teams for the title, as the likes of Arsenal and Manchester City have fallen more than 10 points behind. Middlesbrough, meanwhile, have managed only two wins in the last five games. This could potentially threaten their ability to win the Championship. Burnley are top after having opened a six-point advantage in recent weeks and are now on course to the title.
