Schalke chief Horst Heldt remains prepared to sell Lewis Holtby to Tottenham this month.

Schalke chief Horst Heldt remains prepared to sell Lewis Holtby to Tottenham this month.

Holtby has agreed to join Spurs in the summer on a Bosman and Heldt raised the prospect of an immediate sale last week.

An injury suffered by Ibrahim Afellay has led to suggestions of Holtby being kept on, but Heldt insists: "The situation does not decrease our willingness for him to leave early."
