Stoke defender Huth close to Leicester move

Stoke City are set to send Robert Huth on loan to Leicester City.

Reports suggest that the Potters are keen for Huth to get game time away from the Britannia Stadium and were hoping a Championship club would come in for his services.

However, it appears as though he will spend the rest of the Premier League campaign at Leicester who are desperate to climb off the bottom of the table.

Huth, who could see his temporary deal become permanent in the summer, has struggled for form and fitness after sustaining a serious knee injury in November 2013 and has fallen down the Stoke pecking order following the loan signing of Bayer Leverkusen's Philipp Wollscheid.
