Fulham Football Club can this afternoon confirm the loan signing of Lewis Holtby from Tottenham Hotspur, for the remainder of the season.

The 23-year-old midfielder signed for Tottenham Hotspur in January 2013 on a four-and-a-half year deal from Bundesliga side Schalke 04.

Holtby - who will wear the number 10 shirt for the Whites - made his Spurs debut on 30 January 2013, replacing Clint Dempsey in the second-half of a 1-1 draw with Norwich City.

Holtby scored his first Premier League goal against Fulham at Craven Cottage in René Meulensteen’s first match in charge last month.

He has represented Germany at Under-18s level right through to the Under-21s where he scored 14 goals in 24 appearances. He has three caps for Germany, making his senior debut in November 2010 in a friendly against Sweden.
