Tom looks forward with excitement

Tom Huddlestone is looking forward to the next five years with excitement after putting pen to paper on a new deal at the Club this week.

The midfielder signed up until 2015 having enjoyed what has been a consistent campaign for him so far, in which he has cemented a regular place in Harry Redknapp's side.

And with plenty to play for in the coming weeks in both the league and the FA Cup, the 23-year-old believes anything is possible in the near future.

Tom said: "If we keep making progress like we have done this season, then who knows what we may achieve over the next five years.

"The Club's had a good season so far, and if we get back into Europe I want to be part of that because we've missed it this season.

"On a personal level, I'm happy as long as I'm playing football and I've done that this season. That consistency has come with playing regularly and the team have had a consistent season overall so far - my own performances have coincided with that.

"I got in the side at the start of this season because JJ was injured to start with, but we won the first few games and the manager kept the team as it was. I've played well since then and he's stuck with me.

"Now the contract is sorted I can concentrate on my football with no worries off the pitch."

Tom has become a central figure in a team that includes a number of key players of a similarly young age, including the likes of Aaron Lennon, Vedran Corluka, Sebastien Bassong, and 20-year-old Gareth Bale.

The England international continued: "There are not many players in the squad over the age of 28 and throughout the squad the average age is quite young, especially with the likes of Gareth playing regularly.

"That bodes well for the next few years and we have got the experience you need in there as well."

Tom also speaks about his progress as he continues his recovery from an ankle injury, and his aims for an international future with England.
