Cardiff City are interested in signing Derby County midfielder Tom Huddlestone, according to The Sun.

Neil Warnock is hoping to bolster his midfield options before the end of the transfer window on Thursday and has identified Tom Huddlestone as a potential signing who could add some Premier League experience into his ranks.

The 31-year-old joined Championship side Derby County last summer for a fee of around £2 million and could be handed a top flight lifeline by the Bluebirds this season.

Huddlestone, who has made 4 caps for England, started his career at Derby after being released by Nottingham Forest at the age of 12. He rose through the youth ranks with the Rams and went onto play 95 times for them in his first spell at the club.

He was snapped up by Tottenham Hotspur in 2005 and spent 8 seasons playing for the Premier League side, racking up over 200 appearances. Huddlestone helped Spurs win the League Cup in 2008.

Hull City then signed him in August 2013 for a fee of around £5.25 million and he was a key player in Steve Bruce’s former side who got to the FA Cup final and Europa League in 2014. Huddlestone also helped Hull City gain promotion back to the top flight at the first time of asking in 2016 after they were relegated in 2015.

He left the Tigers last summer to move back to his boyhood club but after the Rams’ failure to get promoted last season, could Huddlestone be tempted to return to the Premier League if Cardiff City come calling?
