Pulis hails new signing Huth

Pulis hails new signing Huth

Tony Pulis today has come out and spoken very highly of new signing Robert Huth despite his actions just over a week ago.

The German international was signed for a club record £6,000,000 in the summer which caused a lot of fans to question Pulis`s transfer plan but he has so far this season become the class act his manager describes him as.

"He has been one of the rocks on which our defence has been built this season, especially away from home". "He`s been the most consistent player in the back four for us. That includes Ryan Shawcross, even though he has had all the publicity" the manager says.

Since joining the club defender who is naturally a centre back has been drafted out to right back but Pulis has no problems with this. "When I took him from Middlesbrough I spoke to Gareth Southgate and he said he would have no qualms about playing Robert at right back, not just centre-half because he`s good in one on one`s and enjoys defending".

After being asked about Huth representing Germany in next summers world cup Pulis says he has high hopes for Huth. "Robert is a very good player and if he continues the way he is I hope he gets selected and goes to the world cup".

Huth will be able to represent Stoke next in the away trip to Hull on November the 8th
