Former Chelsea, Leicester defender Huth confirms retirement

Former Chelsea and Leicester City defender Robert Huth has confirmed his retirement.

Huth says he has retired from football amid reports linking him to Derby.

The 34-year-old announced on social media that he has hung up his boots in response to claims he was about to join Frank Lampard's Sky Bet Championship side on an 18-month deal.

"This literally couldn't be less true," Huth said. "I've retired! (I just haven't done an interview and cried about it)."

The centre-back won two Premier League titles during his four years at Stamford Bridge and was also part of the Leicester team that lifted the trophy against all odds in 2016.
