Spurs chiefs know Holtby weighing up future

Tottenham chiefs know Lewis Holtby is likely to push for a move away.

The German is not prepared to sit on the sidelines under new gaffer Mauricio Pochettino as he chases first-team games.

Holtby had to settle for Europa League football under Andre Villas-Boas and was axed by Tim Sherwood.

Now the London clubs will pounce if that pattern continues next season.

A Tottenham insider told the Daily Star Sunday: "Lewis's speed and stamina might suit Pochettino's style of play.

"But if he is forced to play a bit-part role he will be off."
