Robert Huth joins Leicester City on loan

Stoke's centre-half giant Robert Huth has joined Premier League rivals Leicester City on a loan deal until the end of the season.

The rock-solid Huth had built up a formidable partnership with Ryan Shawcross over the years at the Britannia Stadium but a serious knee injury last season which required a double operation has restricted opportunities for the former Chelsea man. 

Huth has only managed a single league appearance this season, despite making 187 appearances for the Potters over five years.

FA ban

He has featured mainly in the League Cup so there was always a chance a change of scenery was on the cards.

Huth did not help his cause by breaching FA rules on social media and he was given a two game ban by the FA.

This tweet means he may not make his debut for Leicester until February 10 against Arsenal.

Arsenal, coincidently, were the side Huth played against this season in the league and that resulted in a Stoke win. So some superstitious Leicester fans may seen this as an omen. 

Good signing for Leicester

The signing of Huth on loan will help Nigel Pearson and his side dramatically as they conceded three goals against Manchester United this weekend, taking their tally up to 37 goals conceded, leaving them at the foot of the table.

Huth will be looking to change this but is not taking anything for granted at the King Power Stadium. 

"I'm not expecting to walk into the team," he told Leicester City's YouTube channel. "I will need to prove my worth and hopefully I can do that."

Huth is Leicester City's third signing this window alongside experienced goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer and striker Andrej Kramarić. Pearson will be hoping these three can change Leicester's fortune in the coming weeks and lift them out of the relegation zone.
