Kante to have stand named after him

The midfielder's brilliant form this season is set to be rewarded by his former club, who plan on naming a stand after him.

Leicester City midfielder N'Golo Kante is going to have a stand named after him by a former club after his stellar displays this season.

The Frenchman was crucial for Leicester this season, helping to lead them to their shock Premier League title win.

The 25-year-old joined Leicester in 2015 after stints at Caen and Boulogne, clubs who are currently in Ligue 1 and the French third-tier respectively.

It is Boulogne who are planning to honour Kante, the player who was at the club from 2011 to 2013, by potentially naming a stand after him.

"[Franck] Ribery is a big hero in Boulogne because he was born here and played for the club," Boulogne general director Nicolas Durand said to The Sun.

"His dad lives near the training ground and watches our games - so we named a stand after him.

"Franck has gone on to become a big star since he left us in 2002 - but we may well be naming a stand after N'Golo if he continues the way he is.

"It's incredible to think N'Golo was playing for us just three years ago in front of crowds of 2,000.

"Now he's about to become a Premier League champion and will be playing in next season's Champions League."
