Tottenham midfielder Lewis Holtby says he may need to move if regular first-team football is not on offer at White Hart Lane.

The energetic box-to-box midfielder has made three appearances this season, two from the bench, and with new manager Mauricio Pochettino having so many options in the heart of midfield, chances appear limited.

Holtby has struggled at Spurs

Holtby, 23, has yet to fully establish himself at White Hart Lane and spent the second half of last season on loan at Fulham as the Cottagers failed to avoid relegation.

Signed from Schalke in January 2013, Holtby has become a fans favourite due to his high work rate, energy, and positive mentality. However, Holtby struggled in the No10 role behind the striker and is competing for a deeper lying position in midfield.

Morgan Schneiderlin pursuit

Tottenham's pursuit of Southampton's Morgan Schneiderlin only casts more doubt over Holtby's future and the three capped Germany international has been linked with a return to Germany with Hamburg.

"We're just going to have to see what happens in the next few days and weeks," Holtby told "I'm a young player and I want to be playing all the time. That's very important for me, for my development and for my career."

"Preferably, I would stay here with Tottenham of course and that's why I really hope that I get a chance," he added.
