Leicester, England (SportsNetwork.com) - Leicester City announced on Monday the club has completed the signing of defender Robert Huth on loan for the rest of the season from Stoke City.

Huth, 30, has made 187 appearances for the Potters since arriving at Stoke from Middlesbrough in 2009.

"I'm not expecting to walk into the team," he said. "I will need to prove my worth and hopefully I can do that."

Huth started his professional career at Chelsea in 2002, and won the Premier League twice in his four years at Stamford Bridge.

He is currently serving a two-match ban for comments made on social media and will miss the Foxes' Premier League match against Crystal Palace on Saturday, but will be available for the match against Arsenal on February 10.
