Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy could end up making a big profit on Lewis Holtby, with the German joining Fulham on loan with a view to a permanent deal, according to the Daily Mirror.

Rene Meulensteen completed the deal for the 23-year-old attacking midfielder, who has become surplus to requirements at Tottenham since the arrival of Tim Sherwood.

The German has joined the relegation strugglers on loan for the remainder of the season, with a view to an £8million transfer in the summer.

That would see Levy make a major profit on a player who only joined Tottenham for £1.5million on a four-and-a-half year deal last January.

Tottenham beat a host of clubs to the German’s signature, and were able to sign him for a cut price figure, with his contract at the Bundesliga club set to expire in six months.

Holtby is set to earn £70,000 a week at Craven Cottage, as Fulham boss Rene Meulensteen continues to revamp his side in the hope of avoiding relegation.
