Tom Huddlestone came on as second half substitute in Sunday’s game against Manchester City and along with fellow subs Lewis Holtby and Jermain Defoe, the midfielder helped to turn the match on its head and seal the three points.
It reminded fans of the player that there is some real quality there but as the season draws to a close, Thudd is by no means certain of his Tottenham future.
“There are times when I think I might need a move, especially if you don’t play for a few months,” Huddlestone is quoted in the press, but he does go on to say that he remains in the manager’s thoughts.
“The manager has reassured me that I am in his plans, even though time-wise on the pitch, it hasn’t always been shown that way,” he added.
“You speak to the manager every day and if you are not playing for a sustained period then you do wonder what’s going on.
“I guess it’s just a case of biding your time and if you are given a slight opportunity towards the end of games try and prove to the manager that you should be in the starting side as well.”
Tom went some way to proving that in Sunday’s match but should he stay at Spurs and be given a chance or will he move seamlessly over to the deadwood pile at the end of the season?
