Update: Lewis Holtby is in London and Christoph Metzelder is full of it.
No one seems to be able to confirm with absolute certainty if Lewis Holtby is actually in Germany or not. Or if Borussia Dortmund or Schalke is a more likely destination for him. Or if he's leaving Tottenham Hotspur on loan or a permanent transfer.
But it does seem like Holtby's going somewhere. According to Paul Hirst of the Press Association, Holtby's agent expects an exit. Also, Hirst thinks Holtby is in London.
Spoke to Lewis Holtby's agent earlier. He said he expects Holtby to leave Spurs before the window shuts on Friday night.— Paul Hirst (@hirstclass) January 29, 2014
Holtby agent:"My feeling is he'll leave but it's not in our hands. Spurs have to agree first. We hope to find a solution in the next 2days"— Paul Hirst (@hirstclass) January 29, 2014
Have been told Holtby in London, rather than Dusseldorf. Every chance he'll be in Spurs match day squad tonight.— Paul Hirst (@hirstclass) January 29, 2014
This has been a very strange transfer saga, since there hasn't been a clear destination or type of exit specified at all. It kind of just seems like Spurs want him to GTFO. Kind of rude, given how handsome he is.
We'll continue to post updates on this because we need to track Lewis' every movement.
