Holtby To Join Spurs In January

Tottenham Hotspur have announced that they have reached an agreement with Schalke for the immediate transfer of midfielder Lewis Holtby.

The 21-year-old German was originally set to make his move to North London at the end of the season, but Spurs then went on to negotiate with the German club in an attempt to bring the player to White Hart Lane straight away.

Schalke had turned down Spurs' initial approach but the English Premier League side has now revealed that they have come to an agreement.

A statement on the club's official website read, "We are delighted to announce that we have reached agreement with Schalke for the immediate transfer of Lewis Holtby.

"The Germany Under-21 captain, who had already agreed terms to join the Club this coming summer, has made 27 appearances for the Bundesliga side this season scoring four times.

"Capped on three occasions by the senior German national side, the versatile midfielder joined Schalke in 2009 from Alemannia Aachen and was loaned out to Bochum and Mainz prior to making his breakthrough with the Gelsenkirchen-based club.

"Lewis has made 160 appearances in his career to date, scoring 29 times."
