Tottenham's Tom Huddlestone keen to make his mark or look elsewhere

Huddlestone started a Premier League game for the first time since Boxing Day as Spurs beat West Ham 2-0 on Saturday and the central midfielder admitted that if he could not become a regular in North London he may have to consider his future.

Fulham are believed to be interested in the former Derby player, but for now, Huddlestone wants to put down his marker to Redknapp.

'It has been very frustrating as the last League game I started was on Boxing Day, so that is pushing four months. Every player wants to play in every game. I am not different, so it has been very frustrating.

'When Juande Ramos was in charge I played one game in the first 13 so obviously you have to look at things but as long I am at Tottenham I have to give 100 per cent and try to win as many games as possible.

'I just want to be playing, hopefully at Tottenham, but if not then I will have to have a think.'

'It is not in my nature to moan, to be fair. Everything should be chosen on how you perform on the training pitch and how you playing and I am not the sort of person to moan to the manager every week that I am not playing.

'I just have to show him that I should be playing. We played with two strikers and two wingers and that gives me targets to hit. Both our full backs are very attacking.'

Capello spoke highly of Huddlestone recently, and he replied: 'That just adds to the frustration, I guess. Everyone's main aim is to play for the country but if I am sat on the bench week in week out I am not going to be able to do that.'
