JOL WANTS HUDDLESTONE
Former Tottenham manager and the current Fulham manager Martin Jol is reportedly looking at the possibility of bringing Tottenham midfielder Tom Huddlestone in the summer transfer window.
The 25-year-old only has a year left on his current deal with Tottenham, who finished the last season in the fourth position. However, they have failed to qualify for the Champions League this season as a result of Chelsea winning the trophy. This coupled with the exit of Harry Redknapp, who favoured Tom Huddlestone a lot, has meant that the future of the 25-year-old at Tottenham has become extremely doubtful.
It is thought that new Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas would be willing to sell the player in order to raise some cash much needed to bring in the Portuguese midfielder Moutinho. He is expected to cost around £ 32 million. As a result, Villas-Boas is left with no other options than to sell star names like Tom Huddlestone, with his former manager Martin Jol keen to be reunited with him at Craven cottage. Fulham have already lost an influential midfielder in the form of Danny Murphy, with other key names expected to leave the club in the summer. Tom Huddlestone could prove to be a key signing for Tottenham given his exceptional passing skills, which are very similar to Danny Murphy.
New Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas has said that winning the title with his new club is his major ambitions. He is expected to have a transfer kitty of around £ 100 million if he is able to sell some of the star names like Tom Huddlestone and Luka Modric in the summer. The Croatian midfielder has been linked with a £ 35 million move to Real Madrid, although it is thought that Tottenham will not be willing to sell him for less than £ 50 million.
