Fulham are readying another move for Tottenham midfielder Tom Huddlestone, according to reports this afternoon.

The Cottagers had a £6 million bid for Huddlestone rejected by Tottenham in January after they learned Sandro would miss the rest of the season through injury.

But the England international remains top of Fulham’s midfield shortlist and the club are ready to make another move for a player who is a big favourite of manager Martin Jol.

Fulham are expected to start the bidding at around the £5m mark as they attempt to bring greater creativity to their midfield.

Cottagers chiefs remain hopeful that Huddlestone is keen to re-unite with his former Spurs manager Jol in order to play regular football.

Spurs are likely to demand £6m once again for the 26-year-old, who has two years remaining on his current deal.

Huddlestone has also attracted strong interest from Sunderland, but Fulham believe the combined prospect of remaining in London and working with Jol once more could be enough to sway the player.
