The German midfielder joined the Cottagers to aid their relegation battle in January and play regular first-team football after a difficult opening half of the campaign.
He has since become a key man at Craven Cottage, featuring prominently in their recent upturn in form.
With an array of talent at Tottenham, a permanent move away from north London for the 23-year-old has been mooted, but Holtby says that he is hoping to prove himself with the Lilywhites:
“I signed a long contract at Tottenham and I was hoping to have a long future at the club,” he told talkSPORT.
“I still believe I can do that. I have the qualities to play for Tottenham.”
Holtby went on to state that he chose to move to Fulham in a bid to secure regular action and prove himself to be a capable Premier League player:
“I was desperate to get some games. I hate being on the bench.
“I love playing football and expressing myself. Fulham gave me the chance to play high quality football in the Premier League.”
