The Sunday People says that Martin Jol is keen to take Tottenham’s Tom Huddlestone on loan until the end of the season.

The Fulham manager might be forced to shelve his plan to tempt the Spurs midfielder to Craven Cottage by Huddlestone’s persistent ankle injury. A delay in the former England under-21 international’s recovery from his ankle problem might mean he won’t be able to return to full fitness in time to team up with Jol again.

The Dutch coach was a big admirer of the ex-Derby midfielder’s ability when he was in charge at White Hart Lane and tried to sign the 25 year-old when he was in charge at Hamburg. Huddlestone has only made four appearances for Tottenham this season, with his two league outings coming as a substitute.
