Lewis Holtby's future to be decided this week

Better start checking Instagram!

Last weekend, Fulham got relegated and Tottenham's on loan midfielder and social media guru, Lewis Holtby, is #gutted. Now that his season is essentially over, Lewis is #concerned over his #future.

Good news for him though, because according to the Evening Standard, Lewis' representatives are having #discussions with #THFC to decide #lewisholtbysfuture.

Holtby was seen as the bargain of the January 2013 transfer window when Spurs nabbed him for £1.5 million and some leftover training gear. Since then he has endeared himself to Spurs fans with his social media #content and #brand, but his performances on the pitch have been lacking, leaving him unable to secure a place on the first team. At least when we're not playing the dregs of Eastern Europe in the Europa league.

While I have no doubt that Lewis' representatives will be meeting with Spurs soon about #lewisholtbysfuture, and undoubtedly taking many selfies, I would be shocked if Spurs make a #decision on his #lewisholtbysfuture this week.

Tim Sherwood is almost assuredly a dead man walking, but it's probably going to take a week or two before Frank De Boer, Mauricio Pochettino, or any other replacement is in place. You would think that any new manager would want a say over #lewisholtbysfuture given his reputation and #brand.

I'm sure this is frustrating for Holtby, but he should look at the bright side and consider that this will give him time to start a social media campaign to get him on the next season of Strictly Come Dancing.
