Much has been made of the incredible feat pulled off by Leicester City defender Ritchie De Laet.
The 27-year-old defender started the season with the Foxes, before going out on loan to Middlesbrough in early February.
Since then, the Belgian has made headlines after becoming the first player to win both the Premier League title and promotion to the English top-flight in the same season.

De Laet made 12 appearances for Leicester before his Middlesbrough loan move, which was enough to earn a Premier League winners’ medal in the process.
Couple that with Boro’s promotion on the final day of the season and you have a football double unlike any other witnessed.
A Different De Laet
But imagine if that same scenario played out in reverse? That’s what happened to Guinean striker Alhassane or ‘Lass’ Bangoura.
The 24-year-old is contracted to Rayo Vallecano in Spain, having joined the club as a youngster back in 2010.
Far from a regular for Rayo, Bangoura, like De Laet, found himself on the move in January with a loan switch to Ligue 1 side Reims sealed in the final hours of the transfer window.
Doing the Double
However, in moving to Reims, Bangoura ultimately put himself on course to achieve a unique double, having played for both teams in their respective leagues this season.
Because it has been a bad season for both Rayo Vallecano and Reims.
On the final day of their respective seasons, both clubs suffered relegation. All of which means, Bangoura has been on the books of two teams that have suffered relegation this term.
The Next Step
And whether he stays at Rayo or signs permanently for Reims this summer, one thing is for sure: he will be playing in the second tier next season.
Now if that is not the inverted version of Ritchie De Laet, we do not know what is.
