Lewis Holtby is convinced about the quality of the Tottenham squad.

Despite the departure of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid last summer, Holtby is confident that Spurs now have a squad better-equipped to challenge strongly in many competitions.

He told the London Evening Standard: “It’s always difficult to join a club in January, especially when there are not many other signings, and I needed a little bit of a break and a pre-season, just to get to know everyone better. I feel very welcome now. I feel at home here in the team, so now I can show I’m really capable of, and I think I’m progressing.

“Do we have a more balanced squad now? Definitely. Respect to Gareth who was awesome here, a fantastic guy and a fantastic player, but the new players have really adapted to our team and our style of football.

“The Premier League is very tight and it will be very close at the top. You see how much money all clubs are spending, like Cardiff, who were promoted only last season.

“But we are fourth now and if we can continue to adapt to each other, then we have big objectives to aim for.”
