Tom Huddlestone has completed his three match ban after receiving a red card at Everton last month.
Local outlet the Hull Daily Mail expects Huddlestone to retake his place in Marco Silva's starting XI at the expense of Alfred N'Diaye. Huddlestone had been performing brilliantly before his suspension, and the Senegalese has struggled to consistently fill his boots in his absence. He will most likely partner Sam Clucas in midfielder. Clucas will be freed up to play in his more natural box-to-box midfield role and attack more, while Huddlestone will provide a screen in front of the defence. Fri, Apr 14, 2017 12:01:00 PM

Hull City will have to do without central midfielder Tom Huddlestone for the next three matches after losing an appeal to the FA.

The veteran midfielder was sent off with a straight red card for a tackle on Everton's Idrissa Gueye in the club's 4-0 loss in Gameweek 29. Manager Marco Silva told the media that the decision changed the game, and will also change the way the club lines up in the next few weeks: "It was one game until 70 minutes and then another game. Surely we didn't deserve the decision. After that [starting the half well] came one decision that I really don't understand and changed all of the game. Our team, our players, didn't deserve this decision. While pundits and the club alike thought the punishment was harsh, the FA has rejected the Tigers' appeal to rescind the red card, which means Huddlestone will miss the club's next three matches against West Ham, Middlesbrough and Manchester City.

Hull CIty hung tough against high-flying Everton, but it all fell apart after a red card to Tom Huddlestone in a 4-0 loss.

Despite giving up an early goal to Dominic Calvert-Lewin, the Tigers stifled Romelu Lukaku and company by using a back-three and counterattacking tactics. But in the 73rd minute, Huddlestone was sent off with a straight red card for an over-the-ball tackle. Five minutes later, Enner Valencia doubled the lead before Lukaku added a double in stoppage time alone. Without last week's two-goal hero in Oumar Niasse due to loan restrictions preventing a player from facing his parent club, Hull couldn't even manage a shot on target.

Hull City were held to a 1-1 draw at the KCOM Stadium by Burnley.

The first half was quiet, with neither side creating meaningful opportunities to score. The second half began as the first ended, but burst into life in the last 20 minutes. First, Michael Keane was penalised for handling the ball in his own box. Tom Huddlestone capitalised on his error by converting from 12 yards. However, the Tigers couldn't hang on for the win for long, as Keane atoned for his handball minutes earlier by chesting down a Robbie Brady cross and smashing it beyond Eldin Jakupovic. Hull pressed for a winner in vain and in added time, Ashley Barnes received his second yellow card and marching orders.

Hull City officially announced that midfielder Tom Huddlestone has signed a new two-year contract to remain at the club.

The 29-year-old's previous deal was set to expire this summer but Hull City made sure to offer Huddlestone a new contract as one of the club's most experienced Premier League players after making 31 top-flight appearances in 2014/15 during a relegation season. The Tigers locked Huddlestone down to a two-year contract just after signing veteran winger Ahmed Elmohamady to a new contract. Huddlestone, who arrived at the club in summer of 2013 from Tottenham, has made 123 appearances for the Tigers in all competitions.

Hull City confirmed that standout midfielders Ahmed Elmohamady and Tom Huddlestone have been offered new contracts this summer.

The midfielders are two of the club's most experienced Premier League players, part of the core that brought the Tigers back into the Premier League under manager Steve Bruce. In the 2014/15 season, when Hull City was relegated to the Championship with a bottom-three EPL finish, Elmohamady played in all 38 Premier League games, recording two goals and five assists. Meanwhile, Huddlestone played in 31 Premier League games and has nearly 10 years of top-flight experience. Both midfielders are out of contract next month.

Tom Huddlestone looks set to remain at Hull City – for the moment at least – after undergoing minor surgery to remedy a persistent ankle problem.

Huddlestone has been heavily linked with a move away from the KC Stadium with some reports even suggesting a deal had been agreed for around $8 million to Aston Villa. However any move before the start of the new campaign looks highly unlikely after Huddlestone went under the knife to clean out his joint. The procedure itself was pretty straight-forward and Huddlestone is expected to be available for the season opener in early August and should he hit the ground running then interested parties will have until September 1, 2015 to thrash out a a deal. Steve Bruce will be hoping his side can make a swift return to the BPL but the enormity of the task cannot be underestimated having released a number of first team players including the likes of Paul McShane, Liam Rosenior and Maynor Figueroa.

Tim Sherwood is ready to make a £5.5m bid for Hull City midfielder Tom Huddlestone.

Huddlestone is a solid midfielder who Hull City don't need in the Championship and should provide Aston Villa with good depth at the midfielder position. He is unlikely to be a fantasy stud by any stretch of the imagination as he averaged just four fantasy points per match this past season, but he could help Aston Villa avoid relegation next season with some much needed depth, especially since they have lost Tom Cleverley to Everton.

Tom Huddlestone bounced back from a disastrous outing against Arsenal but Hull City dropped a 1-0 home decision to Burnley to push them closer to relegation.

Tom Huddlestone had a shockingly bad match against Arsenal on Monday. Personally, he rebounded to at least some extent with a shot on target, two corners won, a blocked shot, a pass intercepted, a tackle won, and a successful cross. It was not enough, though, as Hull City couldn't score against scrappy Burnley and lost to the already-relegated Clarets 1-0 at the KC Stadium. Not good news for Steve Bruce's men as they face Spurs and Manchester United over the final two weeks as they search for survival.

Ex-Spurs performed poorly in midfield against old rivals Arsenal as their give-aways fueled a 3-1 Arsenal win.

Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore arriving at Hull City in the summer of 2013 was seen as very good business for Steve Bruce's side, it certainly wasn't on Monday as the pair conspired to ignite multiple Arsenal attacks. One such give-away led to the foul and free kick that Alexis Sanchez turned into Arsenal's first goal. There were more give-aways that had consequences ranging from good chances to nothing serious but as with so many of Hull City's acquisitions under Steve Bruce, things started out well enough but the value hasn't been sustained.

Tom Huddlestone returns to the Hull City squad for Week 32 action after completing his suspension.

The former Spurs midfielder returns to active duty for Steve Bruce's side after missing the past four matches due to suspension. Huddlestone may step into the David Meyler-sized hole in the starting eleven after Meyler was himself suspended in Week 31. The trip to St. Mary's will be a tough one for the club who have fallen back to the relegation pack a bit after a brief run of good form in March.

Tom Huddlestone's Week 28 outburst was strong but it has all the markings of an outlier performance.

Tom Huddlestone is a favorite here at Rotoworld_PL headquarters due to a great nickname (THud) and his ability to pick a pass that belies his somewhat oafish build. Unfortunately, Huddlestone hasn't had a great season but he did break out with an assist along with seven successful crosses and three tackles won in Hull City's 1-1 draw with Sunderland. We'll celebrate the accomplishment but don't expect it to happen again anytime soon.

Hull City have confirmed midfielder Tom Huddlestone will serve a four game suspension following his sending-off for a reckless challenge on Chelsea full-back Felipe Luis.

However the game at Stamford Bridge will be remembered more for the referee and his failure to award Gary Cahill a second yellow card for diving before tempers began to fray and it was Tom Huddlestone who vented his frustration first as he was quite rightly shown a straight red card for a terrible tackle on Luis. The Tigers’ midfielder will serve a four match ban keeping him out until the FA Cup tie against Arsenal in January – there had been some confusion regarding the length of his absence initially as Huddlestone collected his fifth yellow card of the season prior to his red but the FA later confirmed the player will serve [3] games for the challenge plus [1] game for accruing five cautions before New Year.

Due to their victory over Brighton and Hove Albion in the 5th round of the FA Cup on Monday, Hull City's week 29 match with West Ham United has been postponed to accommodate the Tigers next Cup commitment.

Two more clubs join a growing list of Week 29 absentees as we now sit at only 10 clubs remaining to play, making for difficult decisions ahead for fantasy managers. Steve Bruce mentioned after the match that Tom Huddlestone, Alex Bruce and Liam Rosenior were rested with knocks, so there is a slight shred of doubt to their availability this weekend, but it sounds as if they should be good to go.

With a fairly thin squad, Steve Bruce will welcome opportunity to rest the newly shorn Tom Huddlestone along with Curtis Davies and Allan McGregor against Middlesborough in the FA Cup.

Huddlestone, who has been excellent since arriving from Spurs over the summer, could use a rest. After years as a squad player at Spurs it is likely that he is enjoying being a started and being exhausted by it in equal measure. The opportunity to face off with a lower division opponent offers Bruce the opportunity to rest some of his key starters to ensure that they are fresh for the second half of the Premier League season where so many fast-starting newly promoted sides have found the going tougher.
