Tottenham’s Holtby keeps door ajar for Germany return

Lewis Holtby insists he would one day like to play in the German Bundesliga again.

Lewis Holtby insists he would one day like to play in the German Bundesliga again.

The 23-year old German midfielder joined Tottenham from Schalke in January 2013 but is already thinking about his former club and league.

"I would never rule out a return to the Bundesliga," Holtby said.

"Especially to Schalke, where I had a great time, even though it might have come across differently during my move a year ago.”

The former Bochum and Mainz loanee, who has started just six times in the Premier League this season, also hinted that a move within England could be an option.

"Things can happen very quickly. English football especially doesn't sleep,” he added.

"At this point in time it's a real up and down for me in sporting affairs.

"There is a big competition for a first-team spot and, although I have had rather rare appearances, I have gained nine assists and three goals thus far this term. This is a good quota!

"I definitely want to be more involved in the starting 11."
