Tottenham midfielder Lewis Holtby still believes that he has a future at the club despite the arrival of a number of competitors.
Spurs spent in excess of £100m on new players over the summer, with the majority going on players who can occupy similar positions to the German.
The likes of Nacer Chadli, Erik Lamela, Christian Eriksen and Paulinho are all thought to be ahead of Holtby in Andre Villas-Boas’ pecking order, which has plunged the attacking midfielder’s future into doubt.
But, despite the vast number of players vying for a starting berth, the 22-year-old believes that he has a future at White Hart Lane, and has dismissed stories that he could leave the club:
“I don’t know where these rumours have come from. I missed nine weeks for Tottenham and missed the pre-season and it has been a tough summer.” He is quoted by talkSPORT.
“We are determined to show the gaffer that everyone is needed at the club and everyone is ready to play in the big games. I am very pleased to be in this squad.
“You need a big squad if you want to challenge for trophies and be strong in every competition. I think we are going to get some very good results this season.
“I knew that Tottenham was going to be a big club in Europe and to be a part of that, it just makes your game better.”
Holtby only arrived in North London during January from Schalke, and featured regularly during the back end of last season.
Although he performed solidly, AVB still opted to delve into the transfer market to bolster his options following the sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid for a world-record fee.
