Huddlestone insists there is no ill-feeling towards Andre Villas-Boas and Spurs.
"None at all," he claimed. "I still had two years left on my contract, so if I wanted to stay, I could have done.
"But I wouldn't have played as much as I would have liked. I chose to leave.
"I went there as a young boy from Derby and left with a lot of experience.
"I also managed to get four England caps, so I'm very grateful for my time there."
