Robert Huth: Set for a new deal

Robert Huth is reportedly set to be offered a bumper new contract just a year after signing permanently for Leicester.

Huth signed a three-year deal on wages of around £40,000 a week after joining from Stoke for £3million last June, but after a hugely impressive season at the King Power he is set to be rewarded with a lucrative new deal.

According to the Telegraph Leicester are ready to offer improved terms to the 31-year-old German, who made 35 starts in the Premier League, scoring three times.

The Berlin-born stopper was a key part of the Leicester’s strong spine and he along with Riyad Mahrez, Danny Drinkwater, skipper Wes Morgan and Kasper Schmeichel are expected to begin negotiations over the summer.

The former Chelsea and Middlesbrough defender signed for Leicester on loan in January 2015 and made 14 apperances, scoring once as Nigel Pearson’s men miraculously avoided relegation. He was rewarded with a permanent three-year deal last summer and after a fine season helping the Foxes to the title this tern he is in line for fresh terms.

Leicester’s vice-chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha said: “We will try everything we can to build the team and secure the players we want to stay and add some quality.

“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.”

Huth and Manchester United’s Marouane Fellaini were both banned for three games. Huth for pulling the United man’s hair, after clashing in the 1-1 draw at Old Trafford earlier this month.

One of the games he was banned from was the win over Everton on May 7 when Leicester were presented with the Premier League trophy and he sent a tweet mocking John Terry which received over 67,000 interactions.
