Huth says Boro contract is agreed

Huth has struggled for first-team football at Chelsea
Chelsea defender Robert Huth claims he has agreed terms with Middlesbrough on a five-year deal which he expects to sign after the World Cup.

The Germany international is currently in his homeland for the World Cup.

And the 21-year-old said: "Nothing has been signed yet. There just isn't enough time during the World Cup.

"But it will happen in the next few weeks. The offer from Middlesbrough convinced me, and I hope I can establish myself there."

He added: "Chelsea and I have agreed that it was better for me and the club to swap sides.

"The Bundesliga would have been an option but then we had offers coming from England and then it was clear for me that I would stay in England since I have been there for six years."

Huth has been linked with a move to Wigan and Everton, but should move to Boro after they agreed an undisclosed fee with Chelsea.

He joined the Blues in 2002 and has represented his country 16 times.
