Harry Redknapp speaks highly of Leicester’s Robert Huth

Robert Huth

Robert Huth joined Leicester City on a permanent contract from Stoke City in the summer transfer window.

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has written in The London Evening Standard that Robert Huth was a big signing for Leicester City.

The German central defender Huth played on loan for Leicester from Premier League rivals Stoke City for the second half of last season and joined the Foxes on a permanent contract in the summer transfer window.

“Robert Huth was a big signing for them,” Rednapp has written in The London Evening Standard. “He came in and helped Wes Morgan at the back, who I have always thought was underrated and has the potential to be a top Premier League centre-back.”

Huth has played in English football his entire professional career and knows the Premier League inside out.

The former Chelsea and Middlesbrough centre-back scored one goal in 14 Premier League appearances for Leicester last season. The German had a pass accuracy of 75%, and won 56 headers, one dribble and 16 tackles.

So far this campaign, Huth has created one chance in 13 league matches for Claudio Ranieri’s side. The former Stoke man has a pass accuracy of 75%, and has won 37 headers, two dribbles and 13 tackles.

Leicester are at the top of the Premier League table at the moment with 28 points from 13 matches, just a point ahead of second-place Manchester United.
