England international Huddlestone has been only a bit-part player under Andre Villas-Boas this season and following the capture of German under-21 international Lewis Holtby it looks like he will be leaving White Hart Lane today.
Tottenham have lost Brazilian Sandro to a season-ending knee injury, but Villas-Boas is still prepared to let Huddlestone leave eight years after he signed as a youngster from Derby County.
Villas-Boas told Sportinglife: “There was an interest from Fulham. I’m not sure if they’re going to follow on that interest. We’ve allowed the club to speak to the player. He’s a player we rate very highly.”
But Fulham counterpart Martin Jol is not sure if the deal will be pushed through on deadline day or wait until the summer to complete the move.
“I think it is awful to get a permanent transfer for someone like Tom Huddlestone on the last day,” Jol said. “I started five weeks ago and that won’t happen on the last day.”
