Former Tottenham midfield Tom Huddlestone admits his move to Hull City has exceeded expectations.

The Tigers are into the FA Cup final and likely to play in the Europa League next season.

Asked whether he expected to reach May's Wembley showdown when he first moved to the KC Stadium in a £5.25million deal last summer, Huddlestone admitted: "No not at all, I don't think anybody, if they're being honest, would have.

"To be in an FA Cup final and be doing fairly well in the league is a testament to the squad."
