Holtby: move to Tottenham is a dream come true

Holtby: move to Tottenham is a dream come true

New Tottenham signing Lewis Holtby admitted he is in the seventh heaven since joining the Spurs from Schalke a week ago.

Tottenham boss André Villas-Boas showed just how high he rates the young German’s abilities by including him in two Premier League matches shortly after he arrived at the White Hart Lane.

The 21-year-old attacking midfielder said: “I have been living my dream for the past few days. I am playing at an absolute top club in the Premier League.”

Holtby is half-English on his father’s side, born and raised in Germany. He has openly expressed desire of playing in Premier League and it was not long before an opportunity presented itself.

He said in his blog published on www.fussball.de: “It has been overwhelming since arriving in the motherland of football. The day the transfer went through, I left for London with just a small suitcase and a few hours later, I was already on the Tottenham training ground, getting the traditional kick up the backside from my new team mates by means of welcoming me. That’s the way things are here in London - hard but hearty.”
