Yesterday we picked up on reports suggesting that one midfielder – Mousa Dembele – would soon be on their way out of Spurs and in a slow international week, focus has fallen on another of our men. Lewis Holtby has impressed while coming off the bench and in cup competitions but hasn’t had quite the same impact as a starter in the Premiership.
Rumours of a sale for the man who arrived at White Hart Lane less than a year ago started as soon as the new players came through the door this summer but Holtby’s agent suggests that his client is going nowhere.
“He is very happy in London and has integrated very well at Tottenham. Absolutely he is not thinking of changing clubs in the next window,” said Marcus Noack.
With Christian Eriksen likely to be sidelined for several weeks, Lewis may get a straight return into the starting XI for Sunday’s game at Manchester City. Erik Lamela is being widely touted as an alternative this morning but is the German a more likely choice?
