Tottenham latest, Holtby optimistic of Spurs future, Davies deal frustrates club

Lewis Holtby

A selection of the latest stories involving Tottenham Hotspur this Thursday evening.

Midfielder Lewis Holtby is said to be optimistic about his future at Tottenham Hotspur under new Head Coach Mauricio Pochettino according to his representative Marcus Noack.

Holtby spent the second half of last season on loan at Fulham after Tim Sherwood ended up taking over first team duties at White Hart Lane. 

But Noack told Sky Sports News that the 23-year-old has a good feeling about staying at the club.

He said: “There is a new manager there now which means it's a fresh start for him and a fresh start for everyone.

“He is happy at Tottenham and has a good feeling there. He wants to stay and prove himself and be part of the team.”

Elsewhere, the saga surrounding Ben Davies from Swansea continues with the Daily Mail reporting that Tottenham have been told to pay a £10 million asking price. The report says that Spurs are becoming increasingly frustrated with the Swans' conduct over the deal.

Spurs are facing competition from London rivals from Queens Park Rangers for two players according to the London Evening Standard.

The Standard reported that QPR have been thwarted in their attempts to sign Serge Aurier after making a bid of £5 million for the Toulouse right-back. Arsenal are said to have an interest in the Ivory Coast international.

Also, Tottenham are targeting one of their old defenders in Steven Caulker from Cardiff City, but Harry Redknapp is hoping his links with the player from their time at Spurs can help lure him to Loftus Road. Liverpool are also reportedly interested.
