Leicester City face stiff competition to land Tottenham star Lewis Holtby on loan as the player has a number of options, reports the croydonadvertiser. 

The 23-year old German international is on the radar of Crystal Palace and Queens Park Rangers as well as the Foxes. And with Holtby seemingly cast out from the first team, a move away looks very likely, with a loan once again in favour.

Holtby completed a yearlong loan deal at Fulham last season, making 13 appearances and scoring once.


The playmaker has shown he has the ability to perform at the top level with Tottenham and former club Schalke, and will want to stay in the Premier League to show he is capable of consistently being one of the League’s best attacking midfielders.

Newly promoted side Leicester could offer him a platform to do that, with the need for an attacking midfielder high on their list.

Manager Nigel Pearson has already been very busy in this window, and could make Holtby his sixth summer signing, after Marc Albrighton, Jack Barmby, Ben Hamer, Leonardo Ulloa and Mathew Upson have already arrived at the King Power Stadium.


The young German could be a revelation for Leicester and with him alongside the other clever signings made, it could give the Foxes a very good chance of avoiding relegation this season.

The club are currently in Thailand on their pre-season tour where they will face Everton on Sunday ahead of the first game of the season, which sees the two sides battle it out with each other for the three points.
