Leicester City close on deal for stoic German international ahead of Champions League campaign


Leicester City fans in the Transfer Tavern have seldom stopped celebrating since their title coronation and it seems the club have been quick to regather and plan for the coming season.

Not that they needed any, but reports from the Telegraph have given the fearless Foxes further reason to celebrate.

Stoic defender Robert Huth looks set to extend his stay in the East Midlands, after proving to be an essential of the club’s recent success.

The 31-year-old has proven a key member of Claudio Ranieri’s title winning side and is reportedly set to be rewarded with a lucrative pay rise.

The former Chelsea star is understood to be taking home £40,000-a-week but there are suggestions the new deal could be anywhere up to double his current salary.

“We will try everything we can to build the team and secure the players we want to stay and add some quality’, revealed the club’s vice chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha.

“We will talk about contracts for the players for the whole summer. Now we should just enjoy the moment and then after the season they are going to play in the Euros. After that we will talk about all the things.

“We cannot compare with City or United, or Chelsea, but as a group of players who play together, if they move to another club maybe they not play well. You have seen many players fail before.

“I like people to work for me when they are happy and enjoy working with the group of people.”

Will Leicester City make the top four next season?
