Sky Bet Championship side Middlesbrough are leading the race to sign Leicester City defender Robert Huth, according to odds given out by popular bookmakers Bet Victor.
They have made the North East club evens to re-sign the central defender, who represented the club between 2006-09.
The German defender is set to leave current club Leicester City this summer when his contract at the King Power Stadium expires at the end of June.
The 2015/16 Premier League champions have shown no interest in renewing the 33-year-old’s contract, and Huth is prepared to drop down a division in order to gain regular first team football.
Alongside Middlesbrough, Stoke City are also interested in signing Huth. The defender also played for the Potters, representing them in the Premier League between 2009-15.
Stoke’s ten year stay in the Premier League was ended in the 2017/18 season, as they were relegated back to the second tier, but the signing of Huth would go a long way to helping them bounce straight back up.
Huth boasts a wealth of experience, not to mention several winners medals. The former Germany international has won the Premier League on three separate occassions, lifting the trophy with Chelsea in 2005 and 2006, as well as playing a huge part in one of the greatest ever sporting accomplishments, as Leicester City defied all odds to win the Premier League in 2016.
Huth’s experience at club level speaks for itself, but he has also represented his native Germany on 19 occassions, scoring two goals.
He helped his country to third place in the 2006 World Cup, which was hosted in Germany.
