Schalke waiting on Tottenham over Holtby move

Schalke general manager Horst Heldt says Tottenham are yet to make an improved offer to sign Lewis Holtby.

The German international midfielder Holtby has already signed a pre-contract agreement to join Spurs when he becomes a free agent at the end of the season.

The Bundesliga club last week claimed to have rejected Tottenham's offer to sign the 22-year-old this month, branding the bid "unacceptable".

The Schalke chief is hoping the situation will be resolved soon, telling L'Equipe: "We didn't have any news from Tottenham since the first proposition we refused five days ago.

"But the situation should sort itself out early this week."
