Spurs have confirmed that Lewis Holtby will join the club from Schalke on July the 1st after signing a pre contract agreement
22 year old Holtby becomes Tottenham's second signing of the window following the arrival of left back Ezekiel Fryers yesterday, making a refreshing change from the usual deadline day will they/won't they's, and even though Holtby won't be a part of the squad until next season, it is clear that the club have identified areas the needed strengthening and are acting upon those, but also looking at the long term and also without spending silly money to chase a dream.
Holtby is rated highly for his energy and work-rate, as well as offering good team play and creativity. In terms of attacking prowess, he is more provider than scorer, however he has a very decent conversion rate for the German Under 21s, where he has scored 12 in 20 appearances, which may at least suggest he has an eye for goal and it is an area which if played in a more pro-active manner, he might well make dramatic improvements in this area.
For those who might be disappointed at what they might see as an underwhelming signing, I would urge you to hold fire on your criticism until you have seen him play and settle. He is a player that comes highly rated and recommended by Stefan Freund, but also if I look a Schalke and more importantly the stats of Klaas-Jan Huntelaar where he went from scoring 13 in 35 in the season before Holtby rejoined the club and 48 in 48 last and 11in 25 this season. Coincidence perhaps, but maybe, just maybe, he is a creative force that we underestimate at our peril...
