Earlier this week, Lewis Holtby was asked about his future and said that his main aim was to get back into the Spurs side. With Tottenham playing the German’s loan club Fulham on Saturday, Holtby was always going to be focussed on but he admitted that he was unsure as to what would ultimately happen.

“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.”

“The status quo is that I will go back to Spurs after the summer holidays. I can’t tell you what is going to happen until then,” he added. “My agent takes care of everything and as far as I know his mobile is always turned on.”

In the run up to Saturday’s match, Tim Sherwood was asked a similar question and the current Head Coach reacted positively to the suggestion of Lewis returning to White Hart Lane.

“We knew he was a good player, he’s playing in that No10 role and he has affected things,” Sherwood said. “We’ve been watching him very closely recently because we’ve got this game coming up, and he’s done very well.

“I think it was right for him, I think he’s been good for them. It’s good that he’s played some games in the Premier League so it will benefit Tottenham next year.

“The last thing we wanted to do was to keep him here and for him not to play, so I think that all of the new signings – the seven of them – will improve and get better, and next year they’ll be better players for having the experience of playing. But they have to play to get that experience.”

Of course, the decision over Lewis Holtby’s next move may not be down to Tim Sherwood but should our German midfielder become a more integral part of the squad in 2014/15?



  1. I really hope Holtby comes back to Spurs, I have always rated him very highly, any time he came on to the field the tempo changed he is a player who can make things happen and change a game, there are not many of them in football today, so we must NOT let him go, with players like him Eriksen in the team we have good attacking options

  2. He is a player I like gives his all with a attitude like that he can succeed anywhere, players like this are hard to find.
    But no player can make a massive impact we need to find our style of play.
    I’d get pep gurdiola to play like Barcelona,or arsenal wenger if you wanna play like arsenal,mourinho if you wanna play like Chelsea ,it’s the manager that makes the difference we could be great if we had pocchetino and played like southampton ,levy choose our style

  3. a young lad that will only get better & like the above comments, he shows qualities which i think would eventually make him a good club captain.
    his attitude reminds me also in the way of jamie o’hara but a technically better version.
    hope he does come back.

  4. Lvg from what I see has a style which is not to attacking or defensive style I don’t like it but it’s not up to me ,I think the manager is the greatest indicator of how were gonna play next season irrespective of players.

  5. Yea I’m like the rest can’t wait for Louie to come back great young talent wears the shirt with pride and gives it 100percent great vision and agree him and eriksen together will be awesome and young Tom Carroll things are looking good COYS !
