Tom Huddlestone hopes to stay with Tottenham.

The 25-year-old has returned to action for Spurs in their pre-season friendlies with Stevenage and LA Galaxy and is keen to be fit for the start of the new season next month.

"Last season was so frustrating," said Huddlestone.

"I made four appearances at the start but then I picked up the ankle problem which persisted for months. It was particularly hard when I was two or three weeks away from returning and then I discovered I needed another operation that ruled me out for the season.

"That was a big setback but once I knew I would not play again, I could concentrate solely on getting ready for this pre-season.

"I've had no problems with the ankle since. It'll be something I'll always have, I just have to learn how to manage it. I'll have to take it day by day, but I don't think it will be a case of missing matches because the games are far enough apart."
