Biography

Tom Huddlestone certainly made an impression during his first season back at Pride Park Stadium since he left for Tottenham Hotspur in 2005.

The midfielder finally grabbed his first Derby County goal with the opener in a 3-0 victory against Brentford in February, whilst his exceptional passing quality was on display throughout the campaign.

Huddlestone missed just four games all season and he is now edging towards 150 appearances for The Rams.

Huddlestone was a regular over his first two years at Pride Park Stadium and he made 95 appearances in total, during which time he helped The Rams secure a play-off finish in 2004/05 and was named in the Championship Team of the Year.

At Spurs, following a brief loan spell at Wolverhampton Wanderers, he went on to become one of England’s most accomplished midfielders.

During an eight-year stay in the capital, he lifted the League Cup, played a crucial role in Spurs achieving a Champions League finish and broke into the senior England set-up – collecting four caps after making his debut against Brazil in 2009.

After moving to Hull City in 2013 for a club-record fee, he once again became pivotal.

Huddlestone helped the Tigers stay in the Premier League and reach the FA Cup Final in his first year and even after they were relegated the following year, the midfielder was a near ever-present as they returned to the top flight at the first attempt, via the play-offs.
