While Chambers will be leading the Blues out at Derby on the final day of the Championship season, his former Nottingham Forest teammate will be lifting the Premier League trophy at the King Power Stadium a few hours later, after Leicester’s home game with Everton.

While not sure if he will accept Morgan’s invite to his end of season celebrations on Saturday, Chambers couldn’t be more proud of his friend’s success.

“He’s having a little get-together on Sunday and he said if I’m about I should go up and join in the celebration. But I’m not sure I will make it to the party as it might be a bit wild for me.

“I can’t believe the story – it’s just absolutely fantastic because I know quite a few of the Leicester boys from playing against them and in the case of Wes he’s a big mate of mine.

“I can’t wait to see him lift the Premier League trophy, it’s just so bizarre and the smile hasn’t been off my face since Monday night. I’m so, so pleased for him.

“It shows dreams can come true.”

While Chambers certainly didn’t expect Leicester to win the Premier League, he has always thought they had a side capable of making an impact.

“I always felt that when they got promoted from the Championship they were a very, very good team,

“They blitzed the Championship away but in the Premier League they didn’t really play in the same way that had got them promoted.

“Then in the last nine games, when they won seven of them to stay up, they abandoned all their plans and went back to the blueprint that had got them promoted in the first place, sitting in and hitting teams on the break. With the quality they have they are still continuing to do that.

“People were writing them off, saying they would blow up and that either Spurs or Arsenal would win it, but in my opinion that never looked like happening.

“It’s just amazing that something like this can happen and hopefully it will change the stronghold on the game at the top level. It shows that anything is possible.”
