Tottenham agree deal to sign Holtby

Tottenham have announced that they have agreed a deal to sign highly-rated Germany international Lewis Holtby from Schalke next summer.

Lewis Holtby has opted to move to Tottenham in January, rather than next summer
Lewis Holtby is highly-rated across Europe

Holtby, 22, will move to White Hart Lane at the end of the season when his contract expires with the German club amid previous interest from Arsenal and Liverpool.

A Spurs statement read: "We are delighted to announce that we have reached agreement with Germany Under-21 captain Lewis Holtby to join the club in July from Bundesliga side Schalke, subject to a medical."

Holtby, who has a German mother and was born in Erkelenz, is the current captain of the Germany Under-21 side and is expected to lead the team at this summer's European Championship in Israel. He has also earned three full caps for the senior side.
