Championship clubs are targeting a move for out-of-favour Stoke defender Robert Huth, according to FLW sources.
Stoke City boss Mark Hughes revealed today that he has agreed for the German born centre-half to be sent out on loan, which has attracted the attention from a number of Championship clubs.
Huth has struggled for first team action this season and has not started a single game for the Premier League side.
And after Stoke’s loan signing of Bayer Leverkusen defender Phiipp Wollscheid last week, Huth’s future at Stoke has been further been put in doubt.
30 year-old Huth started his career at Premier League giants Chelsea after being promoted from the youth team, making 42 appearances over four years.
He signed for then Premier League club Middlesborough in 2006 where he stayed for three years before signing for his current club Stoke in 2009.
Huth has made 149 appearances for the Potters and has proved to be a goal threat with his strength, height and heading ability scoring 13 goals.
However, after falling out of favour at Stoke the experienced Premier League defender is expected to make a loan move to a Championship club.
FLW understands that a number of Championship clubs are thought to be circling Huth like sharks, with Norwich, Reading and Fulham all interested.
Huth would be an astute signing for any FootballLeague club, with his experience and know how in the league he would adapt to the rigours of the Sky Bet Championship quickly.
At the age of 30, Huth is reaching the latter stages of his career, however he would still have a few years of professional football left in him.
