Leicester City fans in the Football Transfer Tavern have been given a boost in the latter stages of the transfer window after talkSPORT linked them with signing former Chelsea defender Robert Huth on loan.
The experienced 30-year-old has only featured four times for Stoke City this season after struggling with a long-term knee injury.
This move would suit both the Foxes and the Potters as he would bring stability to Nigel Pearson’s side as well enabling the German the opportunity to regain his fitness.
Pearson has kept punters on the edge of their seats in the tavern as he has refused to rule out any fresh faces coming to the King Power Stadium this window.
But with the window slamming shut at 11pm on Monday, he will hope to have got his business tied up before then.
“We have tried do the business we wanted to do and got two done very quickly,” said Pearson. “If we can strengthen we will – if stays the way it is, it will,” he said.
“I’ve got no idea if it’ll go right to wire – I won’t be sitting in my office until late. In an ideal world I don’t see why deals are done so late, if you get involved with that you do but I certainly won’t be getting involved myself.
“All I think about is what we’re trying to do, I’m not interested in other people. We have tried to do the business we wanted to.
“It’s nice to have options, we’ve managed to keep a relatively fit squad and hopefully that will continue.”
