Leicester City promoted to Premier League

Leicester City are promoted to the Premier League.

Leicester City have been promoted to the Premier League with six games of the season to spare.

The Foxes' 2-1 victory against Sheffield Wednesday last night paved the way for the club's return to the top tier, with Queens Park Rangers losing at Bournemouth and Derby County failing to pick up at least a point against Middlesbrough confirming the promotion.

"It feels fantastic," captain Wes Morgan is quoted as saying by the Leicester Mercury.

"We did our job on Friday night and we still have six games to go so we just want to concentrate on becoming champions now.

"It is definitely be the greatest achievement of my career so far to achieve promotion. It is amazing and something I haven't done before. To captain Leicester and do it is even more special."

The second automatic promotion spot is still up for grabs, with Burnley currently 10 points ahead of third-placed QPR.
