Holtby Wants More Game TIme

Tottenham Hotspur's Germany international Lewis Holtby is looking for more starts under newly appointed boss Tim Sherwood.

Holtby joined Spurs from Schalke last January and has gone on to make 18 starts for the North London side, while also featuring 20 times from the bench.

He has made one start and one appearance as a substitute under new manager Sherwood following the departure of  Andre Villas-Boas.

Holtby has not ruled out a move back to the Bundesliga, but the German, who is under contract with Spurs until June 2018, wants to stay and fight for more regular game time.

In comments reported by BILD am Sonntag, Holtby is quoted as saying: "I would never rule out a move back to the Bundesliga.

"I was having a great time at Schalke, even if things looked different in that final phase of my stay there.

"In football things can happen very fast. At this point in time it's a real up and down for me in sporting affairs.

"There is a big competition for a first-team spot and, although I have had rather rare appearances, I have gained nine assists and three goals thus far this term. This is a good quota!

"I definitely want to be more involved in the starting XI!"
