Schalke striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar says they'll miss Lewis Holtby.

Holtby has committed to a Bosman deal with Tottenham, which hope to sign him this month for a knockdown fee.

"For us as players it's a pity that he will leave," said Huntelaar. "If he leaves now and there is no one to arrive, then that's bad for the team."
