Robert Huth will serve a three-match suspension for Stoke after admitting a charge of violent conduct.

The German defender, 28, was charged on Tuesday following a clash with Philippe Senderos during Stoke's 1-0 defeat against Fuham on Saturday, an incident which was missed by match officials.

A statement on Stoke's official website confirmed the news, saying: "Stoke City have confirmed that Robert Huth has accepted the charge of violent conduct following an incident in last weekend's game at Craven Cottage."

Huth will now miss the Premier League games against West Ham, Newcastle and West Brom.
