‘It is a great shame that I have been unable to call on Robert’s experience due to injury this season,’ Leicester boss Claude Puel told the club’s official website.

‘he is a fantastic man and is always a positive influence on the squad and for this I am grateful.’

‘I would like to congratulate him on everything he has achieved as a Leicester City player.’

Huth moved to the King Power Stadium on loan from Hull midway through the 2014/15 season before joining the club on a permanent deal at the end of the campaign.

The defender has scored six goals in 93 appearances and played a key role in the team’s incredible Premier League title scalp in 2016.

Huth will be presented to the Foxes faithful ahead of Wednesday’s home clash with Arsenal, giving supporters the opportunity to thank him directly for his contribution to the Club.
