'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Jol Calls For Huddlestone Return

Tottenham Hotspur manager Martin Jol today dashed Wolverhampton Wanderers' hopes of holding on to midfield loan ace Tom Huddlestone for the remainder of the season, declaring 'I think he'll come back'.

Huddlestone, 19, who joined Spurs from Derby County for 2.5M last summer, arrived at Molineux in October for an initial one month's loan, after the talented youngster failed to land a first-team place at White Hart Lane.

Wolves officials battled relentlessly to extend this loan period when it expired in last November, after Huddlestone put in a string of top quality performances, and it was finally agreed that Huddlestone, who can also play at centre-back, would remain at Molineux until January 21.

Wolves boss Glenn Hoddle had indicated that he would like Huddlestone to remain at the Championship side for the remainder of this season, but after Spurs offloaded midfield duo Sean Davis and Pedro Mendes to Portsmouth yesterday, Dutch coach Jol indicated that Huddlestone would be likely to travel back to London in eight days time.

Jol said: 'Huddlestone has got an agreement until January 21 and I think he will come back.'

Wolves CEO Jez Moxey has not given up on thrashing out a late agreement with the White Hart Lane hierarchy, but he admitted the sale of Davis and Mendes to Portsmouth had crippled Wolves' chances.

Moxey said: 'The long and short of it is that they said if they sold some players or got injuries in midfield, then they are likely to call him back.'
