Holtby heads back to Germany

Last Updated: Mon, 01 Sep 2014 18:03

Tottenham midfielder Lewis Holtby has completed a move to Hamburg on a season-long loan deal.

Holtby signed for Spurs in January 2013 from Schalke but has struggled to establish himself in the starting line-up at White Hart Lane.

A six-month loan spell at Fulham last term proved unsuccessful as the Cottagers were relegated to the Championship and manager Felix Magath criticised the 23-year-old's attitude.

Mauricio Pochettino's arrival as Spurs head coach offered renewed hope for the midfielder, but, despite a promising pre-season, Holtby has not started any of the club's three Barclays Premier League matches so far.

Holtby has scored one goal for Tottenham in 25 league appearances.
