PICTURE: Tottenham star Holtby training with Fulham ahead of Deadline Day switch

Lewis Holtby

German star Lewis Holtby looks set to become a Fulham player by 11pm tonight after training with The Cottagers this morning.

It is a deal that has not yet been confirmed - but it is only a matter of time until Fulham announce they have snapped up Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Lewis Holtby.

The German midfielder only signed for Spurs 12 months ago - but since the arrival of Tim Sherwood his already low level of playing time has diminished even further, especially with the emergence of Nabil Bentaleb.

With that in mind his agent made it clear that the player would be looking to leave the club for first-team football - and interest quickly came from all corners.

Schalke 04 reportedly tried to bring him back to Gelsenkirchen while their bitter rivals Borussia Dortmund were also said to be keen on a move for the bustling midfielder.

Stoke City were also considering a move for the player - however that has not happened, he is seemingly a Fulham player.

Well he certainly looked it today.

He trained with the club this morning - as what looks like a potential loan deal until the end of the season seems on the cusp of completion.

Nothing has yet been officially confirmed by wither club - but looking at this picture it is hard to see anything going wrong with this deal - and Holtby should be a Fulham player soon.
