The Cottagers manager has revealed he has been keen on the 26-year old for quite some time, indicating that a January swoop may be in order.
"Over the last six years I had an interest in Tom Huddlestone but he was injured and then went to Stoke (on loan). I think he failed a medical there but I am not sure, so he went back to Spurs," said Jol.
"If Tom is fit, he is always in the back of my mind but as I told you before, I won't speculate on names. I can't say Tom is not on my list because I like him."
