Midfielder Tom Huddlestone signs new Tottenham deal

Tottenham midfielder Tom Huddlestone has signed a new contract that is set to keep him at the club until 2015.

The 23-year-old has been a regular in Spurs manager Harry Redknapp's line-up this season, making 34 appearances.

His strong performances in midfield convinced England boss Fabio Capello to hand him his international debut in the 1-0 loss against Brazil in November.

He joined Tottenham from Derby County for £2.5m in July 2005 and had a loan spell at Wolves in October 2005.

The passing ability he demonstrated as a teenager led some Tottenham fans to label him the new Glenn Hoddle, but earlier this year, Huddlestone admitted he had not progressed as quickly as he had hoped after moving to White Hart Lane.

However working with Hoddle during his loan period at Wolves helped boost his confidence, and he has taken the chance to establish himself under Redknapp, building an impressive partnership with Honduras international Wilson Palacios as Tottenham look to secure fourth place in the Premier League.


Huddlestone has missed the last two games because of injury after suffering ankle ligament damage during last month's 2-1 win over Everton.

He joined fellow midfielder Jermaine Jenas, winger Aaron Lennon and defenders Jonathan Woodgate and Ledley King on a lengthy injury list. As a result, Spurs recalled midfielder Jake Livermore from his loan spell at Peterborough.
