Spurs move 'dream come true' for Holtby

Published Add your comment

Germany Under-21 midfielder Lewis Holtby has described his move to Tottenham as a "childhood dream come true".

The 22-year-old midfielder, whose father Chris is from Liverpool, will move to White Hart Lane at the end of the season when his contract expires with Schalke. Having announced last month he would not be extending his contract with the Bundesliga club, Spurs gave him his long-desired route into the Barclays Premier League with Arsenal also interested in the player.

"When I was a lad, I used to sit with my dad in front of the TV and long to play there (in England)," Holtby wrote on his Facebook page. "This chance has now arrived, and I have taken it. I have always said that it would be realising a dream for me to play in the Premier League one day."
