Martin Jol Interested In An Underachieving Spurs Crock?

According to the Daily Mail Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, Tom Huddlestone, might be on his way to their London rivals in a transfer which will see the injury prone midfielder move to Craven Cottage to replace former skipper Danny Murphy, who left the club at the end of his contract to move to Ewood Park.

Martin Jol, who is the current Fulham manager, signed Huddlestone when he was Tottenham manager back in 2005 and has since gone on to prove himself in his limited game time.

Due to a string of injuries since the beginning of the 2010/11 season, Huddlestone has only made 22 appearances in all competitions but still managed to create an impact on the team by scoring 2 goals and assisting a further 3.

His injuries are clearly a problem for the Spurs board who are yet to offer the versatile midfielder a new contract despite his clear qualities which he has demonstrated over his 7 years at the North London club.

With one year left on his current contract, Fulham will be able to buy the 25 year old Englishman for a bargain price of £4 million, despite captaining his club against Inter Milan in a historical 3-1 win. Surely captaining a club in the Champions League, being one of his many accolades, Fulham must surely want Huddlestone at this cheap price who can directly takeover from Murphy’s position, and his captaincy badge too.

Despite his clear positives, with the likes of Dzagoev and Moutinho being linked to the club who have a cleaner bill of health, is it time to say goodbye to Huddlestone for good?
