Lewis Holtby: Has failed to secure a regular role in Tottenham's first team

The 23-year-old German left Schalke for Tottenham a year ago, but has only been on the fringes of the first team this season.

Holtby is desperate for regular football as he attempts to revive his faint hopes of a World Cup call-up and a move back to his home country could catch the eye of selectors.

Agent Marcus Noack has suggested that Holtby could return to Schalke before the end of the month, with a loan until the end of the season being the most likely option.

"Lewis is desperate to play, which is why we are looking intensively for solutions," Noack told the Bild newspaper.

"Schalke is an interesting option."

The Bundesliga side could be in need of another midfielder as Jermaine Jones has requested a move away from the Veltins Arena.

Will be a shame to lose Lewis, as I love his attitude.. but we simply have too many midfielders.. Is he better than Dembele, Paulinho, Sandro or Ericksen... sadly not, so what do you do? Good luck to the lad... As for your stupid comment Arsenallass - It's not like he'd be getting into your midfield ahead of Ozil, Ramsey, Arteta, Walcott, Carzola, so why the bitter dig at him choosing us over you lot?

Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
