The highly-rated midfielder joined Hull City from Tottenham for around £6million.
“It would have been easier to stay at Tottenham,” Huddlestone told the Independent.
“I still had a couple of years left on my contract, so I could have sat there and played maybe every fifth or sixth game, with the amount of competitions they were involved in. But I just wanted to play as regularly as possible.
“Every player will tell you if you have confidence it adds an extra 20-25 per cent to your game.”
“I didn’t have that much dialogue with the manager regarding what would be happening this season,” he continued.
“I just knew there was a couple of clubs interested and when Tottenham accepted the bids it was clear what their thoughts were on the situation.”
