On transfer deadline day in January 2014, Fulham pulled off something of a coup by securing the signature of Lewis Holtby on loan from Tottenham Hotspur.

After leaving Borussia Mönchengladbach as a youngster, Holtby was snapped up by Alemannia Aachen and went on to make his debut for the club in the 2007/08 season.

He spent two seasons with Aachen before moving on to Schalke 04 where, after spending time on loan at VfL Bochum and Mainz 05, he established himself as a regular in the side. It was in the 2011/12 campaign where he really shone for the first time, making 41 appearances for Schalke as they finished third in the Bundesliga in addition to reaching the Quarter-Finals of the UEFA Europa League.

The following year he played in all of Schalke’s Champions League group games as they finished top ahead of Arsenal, although he did not feature in the competition in the knock-out phase after a move to Spurs materialised in January.

He made 17 appearances for his new club that season, and had featured 22 times this term, scoring his first Barclays Premier League goal against Fulham, as Spurs emerged 2-1 victors at Craven Cottage back in December.

Holtby has been capped three times by Germany, making his debut in November 2010 in a friendly match against Sweden.
