Huth Say Stoke Will Decide Next Move
Robert Huth has said that it will be Stoke City that decides where he will be playing next season though it is understood the Foxes are keen to see the German return next season after being influential in the revival of Leicester City at the back end of the season.
Huth told the Stoke Sentinel “It is down to Stoke what happens, It is the only way really. They will ultimately make that decision. I have another year left. The bottom line is I am a Stoke City player and they will make the decision. If they see fit to let me go, then I will go, but if they want me to stay, I will stay. It is out of my hands.”
Huth has been at the heart of Nigel Pearson’s defence and has forged a back three partnership with Marcin Wasilewski and Captain Wes Morgan whilst the Foxes have picked up 18 points in their last 7 games that has lifted the side out of the relegation zone and on the verge of safety.
Matty James Injury Update
Leicester City are still waiting to confirm the seriousness of midfielder Matty James’s knee injury after he was stretchered off in Saturday’s 2-0 win against Southampton. The club are still waiting for scans to return but it looks likely the former Manchester United youngster will miss the rest of the season and could likely miss a proportion of next season too after twisting awkwardly in the first half of the Foxes victory.
Manager Nigel Pearson told the Official Foxes site “ It really is a case of getting the scan done and taking it from there. It doesn’t look to be at all encouraging. It could be a serious knee injury, but we’ll wait and see what the scan tells us”

The Foxes have competition for his signature from fellow Premier League side Southampton and newcomers Watford but Foxes manger Nigel Pearson appears to be in pole position to sign the talented Spanish defender.
