Leicester City are moving closer to securing a loan move for Stoke City defender, Robert Huth.

Leicester boss Nigel Pearson has been looking for new recruits to boost his squad as the Foxes, who are currently bottom of the Premier League table,facing a battle to stay in the top flight.

The 30-year-old German defender, who has played 187 times for Stoke since his £5m transfer from Middlesbrough in August 2009, has fallen down the pecking order under boss Mark Hughes at the Britannia.

Huth was loan listed a few weeks ago and a number of Championship clubs were said to be interested in a move for the former Chelsea defender. However,it seems that Leicester are set to pip those to the German defender as they close in on a loan move for the Stoke City centre half.

If the Foxes can conclude a deal for the German, they will have acquired a fine Premier League defender in their ranks.
