Lewis Holtby is being linked with a move away from Tottenham.

The Daily Star says reports in Germany claim the former Schalke star will be forced out, after boss Andre Villas-Boas strengthened the Spurs midfield significantly during the summer.

Christian Eriksen, Etienne Capoue and Paulinho look set to take his place in the burgeoning pecking order at the north London club.

It has even been suggested his former team Schalke could activate buy-back clause.
