Tottenham midfielder Lewis Holtby was sent out to Fulham on loan during the January transfer window in an effort to get more game time and to see if he could keep the Cottagers in the Premiership. The first part of that mission was accomplished but Felix Magath’s side dropped into the Championship on Saturday, thereby ruling out any possibility of a permanent move to Craven Cottage.
According to the Evening Standard, Holtby is now waiting on Spurs amidst reports that his representatives are seeking a meeting with the club. Only last month, the player stated that his preferred option was to remain at White Hart Lane.
“I loved playing for Tottenham and I would like to fulfil my contract there. But at first it is important to avoid relegation with Fulham,” Holtby told Goal.com.
“I will only think about stuff when the time comes to think about it.”
That time is now but should Lewis Holtby walk back into Tottenham’s set up and was it a mistake to send him out on loan in the first place?
