Huddlestone aims for winning exit

Huddlestone staying on will boost Derby's promotion hopes
Derby's Tom Huddlestone will not join Tottenham until the summer so he can play a part in the Rams' promotion bid.

They are currently fifth in the Championship and will keep the 18-year-old defender until the summer, when he will join Tottenham for 2.5m.

"It's important we prevent the move from disadvantaging our quest for success," said Derby chief executive Jeremy Keith.

"He is still a Derby player who remains committed to the club."

An England U17 international, Huddlestone broke into the Rams' first team at the age of 16.

He was their joint top-appearance maker last season with 44 starts, and has proved his versatility this term, playing in a number of different positions.
