With all the talk of attacking midfielders down at White Hart Lane, with the sale of Gareth Bale imminent and the possible arrivals of Erik Lamela and Christian Eriksen, it is easy to forget about former Schalke starlet Lewis Holtby.

Holtby arrived at Tottenham in January with a lot of promise and hype, but failed to really stamp his authority on the first-team in the following few months.

However, with Gareth Bale seemingly on the verge of a move away from the north London club, Holtby has given his manager Andre Villas-Boas some food for thought with a stunning finish in the club's under-21 match against West Ham.

The German international had seen an effort beaten away by the goalkeeper only seconds before he equalised. The midfielder picked the ball up 30-yards out, before setting himself and firing an unstoppable left-footed strike in off the crossbar to level the scores at 2-2.

It was a reminder of the quality that the 22-year-old possesses and if he can show that more often, his manager will find it hard to leave him out of the first-team for very long.
