News: Huddlestone Swoop #avfc

Hot on the heels of links to Jamie Vardy, Andros Townsend & Tariqe Fosu – Villa are also in the hunt for Tom Huddlestone.

The steady figure at relegated Hull is looking for an out card and knows Sherwood from his Spurs days.

The tall, strong centre midfielder is valued at £5.5 million by Hull, but there is room for

manoeuvre

given that Huddlestone is in the final year of his contract.

Huddlestone would represent a conservative buy for Villa, operating in a more holding role than that of the outgoing Cleverley.  However, linking up with Sherwood may unlock aspects of Tom’s game which may have been restricted under potato head Steve Bruce’s approach to management.

Huddlestone has always appeared a tidy player from afar & with some coaching might be a shrewd and welcome addition to the playing staff at Villa Park.
