Tottenham midfielder Tom Huddlestone has admitted that the time may be right for him to move away from White Heart Lane, The Metro reports.

The 26-year-old has spent eight years in North London and was once tipped to be a future star of the game, but injuries, loss of form and the calibre of players in front of him have limited his chances at making an impact at the club in recent seasons.

However, according to another report in The Metro he won’t have long to wait for any potential suitors with both Fulham and Aston Villa keen to take him off of Spurs’ hands.

The four-cap England international knows that he can’t miss anymore playing time now as he enters a crucial stage in his career.

“I am 26 now. I missed a year to 18 months through injury,’ he said. ‘You just want to play every game and if that opportunity is not at Tottenham then I will have to look elsewhere,” he said.

So far this season Huddleston has made just 13 league appearances for Spurs, with the last three coming from off the bench. He also knows the value of playing regularly with the run up to the World Cup next year. He had been included in Roy Hodgson’s squad against Sweden in November and though the side still face a battle to qualify, a run in a first team could put him on the plane to Brazil next summer.
