Lewis Holtby has his sights set on returning to Tottenham when his loan spell at Fulham comes to an end this summer.

The 23-year-old midfielder moved to Craven Cottage on a short-term deal until the end of the season in a bid to help Fulham avoid Premier League relegation.

I loved playing for Tottenham and I would like to fulfil my contract there

Holtby has since scored one goal and made three assists for the west London club after struggling to hold down a starting spot at Spurs.

But the Germany international is expecting to return to White Hart Lane in the summer.

“There is little sense in talking about other clubs since I have a long-term contract at Tottenham,” Holtby told Goal.

“The status quo is that I will go back to Spurs after the summer holidays. I can’t tell you what is going to happen until then. My agent takes care of everything and as far as I know his mobile is always turned on.

“I loved playing for Tottenham and I would like to fulfil my contract there. But at first it is important to avoid relegation with Fulham.

“Alone because of these unbelievable fans. I would be a shame if such a great club would not play in the top league.

“I will only think about stuff when the time comes to think about it.”
