Everton boss Moyes stepping up bid for Tottenham's Huddlestone

Everton boss David Moyes is ready to pounce for Tottenham midfielder Tom Huddlestone.

The Liverpool Daily Post says Moyes' hopes for signing Huddlestone were last night boosted after a source close to the Tottenham Hotspur midfielder revealed he is desperate to play regular Premier League football.

Three undisclosed clubs have had bids of £8.5million accepted for the player and with Goodison Park manager David Moyes a long-time admirer of the former England under-21 international, Everton's name has been strongly mentioned.

The source close to Huddlestone is quoted as saying: "Tom has been frustrated at Spurs. "Harry (Redknapp) came in and he started the next 10 games.

"Then Wilson Palacios arrived and he barely played. When Capello mentioned Tom as one for the future, he knew he needed to play regularly to achieve that.

"Tom has been told Spurs want him to stay but things can change.

"Everyone has a price, and Sunderland have money to spend and are looking to bring players in.

"He's a quality player who can pass with both feet as well as anyone."
