Leicester signing Robert Huth is among Premier League's best ever business, says Jamie Redknapp

Jamie Redknapp has hailed Leicester City's results since signing Robert Huth from Stoke City.

Robert Huth played an integral role in helping Leicester City shell shock Manchester City at the weekend.

The German defender netted a brace as the Foxes secured a 3-1 victory at The Etihad, continuing his outstanding form since signing for the club.

Leicester signed Huth on loan from Stoke last season before making the deal permanent in the summer.

Former footballer Jamie Redknapp has told The Mail he rates the deal as one of the best in the history of the league.

He said: "Signing Robert Huth has to be one of the best bits of business we’ve ever seen in the Premier League.

"Since he joined in January 2015 he has won 21 and lost just six of his 38 games. He helped them escape relegation and could add to the two Premier League title medals he won at Chelsea. He has been sensational for Leicester."

Watching the way Huth is playing makes it all the more surprising Stoke were so happy to let him leave. Mark Hughes' side were beaten 3-0 by Everton at the weekend, and could really have done with the centre-back in their defence - but their loss in Leicester's gain, a quite monumental one.

As Redknapp points out, Huth has two medals from his Chelsea days as a youngster, but this title win - if Leicester can do it, would be the best of the lot.
