Leicester City are flying in the Premier League and it has many pundits discussing whether Danny Drinkwater should join Jamie Vardy on the plane to Euro 2016 with England this summer.

But another player in the Leicester team who might also have a chance of being in contention for his respective nation must be German defender Robert Huth.

The 31-year-old has been the rock at the heart of Leicester's defence and his goal threat has also been

Moved on from Stoke City, initially on loan, in February last year he has revitalised himself at the King Power Stadium.

He already has 19 caps for Germany, picked up during his time with Chelsea and Middlesbrough. He even played at the 2006 FIFA World Cup. He has not featured for Germany since 2009 and the nation are currently World Champions - so getting back in the fold would be difficult.
