Tom Huddlestone has been at Tottenham for over 7 years, where a string of injuries and unfortunate timing has seen him miss out on a Tottenham starting position.
The Englishman is currently a regular on Villas-Boas’ bench and based on his little performance time so far, there is no reason to suggest he is challenging for a position in the first eleven.
With competition fierce in the squad, the return of Scott Parker will only push the 25 year old down the pecking order even further.
Despite his assist on Thursday evening, his passing has been shabby of recent times and his huge physique has seen him struggle move up and down the pitch.
In over 125 appearances for the club, he has scored 8 goals for the North London side and also won the League Cup in 2008.
He has over 2 years remaining on his contract with rumours of his future in the summer being questioned by the media. At times it was reported that he would be joining Stoke City on a season long loan, but obviously the deal did not take place.
