Robert Huth signed a loan deal with Leicester City on February of the current year and with the arrival of the German defender, the club went through a positive string of results as Leicester City won 7 of their last 9 matches of the previous Premier League season.
Huth helped Leicester City fight for their stay in the Premier League and the German player was rewarded for his efforts by receiving a permanent contract offer from Leicester City as the 30 year old defender signed a 3 year long permanent deal.
When Huth arrived to the King Power Stadium, the club was located in the bottom spots of the Premier League but Leicester City still managed survive at least for another season in the top tier English League after an impressive run in the final stages of the past season and Huth played a big role in this accomplishment as his arrival to the team sparked life to the team.
This signing is the 2nd one that Leicester City has completed so far in this summer transfer window as they had already signed Christian Fuchs on a free deal back in June.
When Robert Huth’s transfer was completed, Leicester City launched a statement on their website which read: “The 30-year-old German’s move to King Power Stadium comes on the back of a string of stellar performances for the Foxes during a 14-game loan spell last season – displays which quickly endeared him to the City supporters.
“Alongside Wes Morgan and MarcinWasilewski, the 6ft 3ins German defender played a key role in helping guide the team to survival, and his presence for the 2015/16 campaign will certainly be welcome.”
This transfer benefits Robert Huth in a huge way as the veteran player was struggling trying to snatch a regular starting role in Stoke City. In his last 2 seasons at the Britannia Stadium he only managed on making 13 appearances but now with Leicester City, he is expected to have a starting role.
