Tom Huddlestone is one of my favourite players inside the Barclay's Premier League. Here are just a selection of reasons why.

Tom 'Tommy' Huddlestone completed his move from Spurs to Hull City (or should I say the Tigers) last summer in a move which has really turned his career around.

Huddlestone has always been highly regarded, but struggled to push his way into the starting XI or gain a decent run of games at Spurs, with new midfielders always arriving at White Hart Lane.

Since his move to Hull, Tom has impressed football fans all over the country with his vision and ability to pass with both feet; at times it can be hard to tell if he's stronger with his left peg or his right.

Another positive factor about Huddlestone is his commitment to charity work. I don't know many players who would stick without a haircut for over two years. He has raised over £50,000 for Cancer Research UK by refusing a trip to the barbers until he had overcome his goal drought.

Luckily for him though, on the 28th December of last year the miracle occurred, as he smashed a left footed shot into the bottom right corner.

You see some players who take playing at the top of the game for granted, and get into all kinds of trouble on nights out, on the roads and so on.

Huddlestone's personality and commitment is obvious every time he steps out onto the pitch, hence the justified speculation around the possibility of him getting an England recall in time for this summer's World Cup finals.

I am a big admirer of the midfielder and in my opinion he would add the stability and composure England so desperately need sat in front of the back four.

Huddlestone would be the ideal footballer for the Three Lions in the heat and humidity of South America this summer, and I think the performances of this season suggest he is worthy of pulling on the famous white shirt yet again.
