The Mayor of Leicester wants to rename some streets if Leicester City win the Premier League
The city of Leicester may soon have some streets renamed in honour of the current Premier League leaders.
According to The Times, Peter Soulsby, wants to give the players and manager Claudio Ranieri a place in the city for life if the win their first ever league title. "It has been a real team effort, so as well as Vardy Vale we would need to have Schmeichel Street, Drinkwater Drive and Ranieri Road."
The city already has a road named after former star Gary Lineker near the site of Leicester's former stadium at Filbert Street. "Leicester has honoured its sporting stars in the past. There is an area named after golfers and there is also a Lineker Road", Soulsby added.

Claudio Ranieri's side are currently seven points clear at the top of the Premier League. This day last year, the team looked certain to be relegated. The Foxes were at the foot of the table and six points away from safety.
Four wins from the final six games will guarantee Leicester the title. They face relegation-threatened Sunderland on Sunday, knowing a win could send the team ten points clear if results go their way earlier in the day when Tottenham face Manchester United.
Whatever happens this season, some street names in Leicester could be a fitting tribute to a very memorable season.
