Leicester City's Andy King may not be as famous as the great Martin Luther King, but not since 1963 has one man had such an awe-inspiring dream - to be once, twice, three times a league winner with one club.

The attacking midfielder - and Leicester’s current longest-serving player - is on course to win league titles in each of England's top three divisions.

Despite not being a regular starter this season, King would be in line for a Premier League winner's medal if the Foxes pull through - it's no wonder he's urging his teammates on.

He said: "We have shown this season we can match the best and beat the best. I think people have given us the respect we deserve and we are up there on merit."

Similar to Robert Huth and manager Claudio Ranieri, King's Premier League title-winning ambition was fuelled at Chelsea.

The 27-year-old joined the Blues as a nine-year-old and played for the club's academy whilst Ranieri was manager of the first team.

After his release from Chelsea in 2004, King joined Leicester's academy and learned his craft in the Championship, sticking with the East Midlanders through all their ups and downs, even following relegation into League One.

Each promotion since has been as deserving champions - and King will hope to end this season in a similar fashion, rather than 'settle' for a Champions League place.

The English-born midfielder will travel to this summer's European Championships with Wales alongside Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey to write another new chapter in his career.

As for the Premier League, a 1-0 victory over Watford on Saturday saw King and co. forge a five-point gap at the top with only nine games to go.

A winner's medal in the top-flight for King would be a testament to his perseverance and devotion to the Foxes.
