Midfielder Huddlestone admits he may have to leave White Hart Lane to find regular first-team football and left-back Bale believes he will be allowed to leave at the end of the season.
Fulham enquired about signing Huddlestone in the January transfer window and are ready to renew their interest as they seek to strengthen a midfield that lost Jimmy Bullard to Hull.
Bale's possible availability has also alerted Fulham boss Roy Hodgson, who is confident he could help him fulfil his potential.
Huddlestone made his first Premier League start since facing Fulham on Boxing Day in Saturday's victory over West Ham, but has fallen down the Spurs pecking order since Wilson Palacios joined the club.
England manager Fabio Capello said that Huddlestone, 22, is one of the young players he is carefully watching, and that has only made him more eager to play regularly.

“I am considering my future a little bit,” said Huddlestone. “Every player wants to play in every game and I am no different, so it has been frustrating. I want to stay and play at Tottenham but if not then I will have to have a think.
“I'm 23 this year and I'm not young any more. Hearing the England manager likes me just adds to the frustration. Everyone's aim is to play for their country, but if I'm sat on the bench every week then I am not going to be able to do that.”
But Huddlestone does not plan to go knocking on Redknapp's door if he is left out in future.
Huddlestone said: “I am not the sort of person to moan to the manager. I just have to show him that I should be playing.”
