Mirror report.

The Cottagers have been heavily linked with a move for the powerful midfielder during January and Martin Jol has finally decided to make his move with just over 24-hours before the transfer window closes.

Jol worked with Huddlestone during his three-year spell as manager at White Hart Lane after signing him from Derby in 2005 and is keen to be reunited with him on the Thames.

Current Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas told the 26-year-old he could leave at the start of the month after struggling to hold down a starting role this season but his £7m price tag deterred any potential suitors.

However, its thought Villas-Boas would be willing to accept a slightly lower offer and Huddlestone, who has four England caps, now seems destined for a move from north to west London after Fulham firmed up their interest with a serious offer.

Meanwhile, AC Milan utility man Urby Emanuelson is close to joining the ranks at Craven Cottage until the end of the season with a loan deal for the Holland international close to completion.

“I will finish the season with a loan deal,” Emanuelson confirmed.

“I have worked in a very good way with him (Martin Jol) at Ajax and am happy as he gives me the chance.”
