MOST COMMENTED

Schalke 04 midfielder Lewis Holtby, who signed a contract to join Tottenham Hotspur on a free transfer this summer, will now reportedly move to the English Premier League club before the January transfer window closes on Wednesday, ESPN reports. Spurs had initially seen its offer of $2 million for the 22-year-old rejected, with the Royal Blues wanting closer to $2.7 million.

Holtby didn’t appear to be any closer to leaving Schalke over the weekend. Following the 0-0 draw at Augsburg, the 22-year-old said: “My fridge is still packed. Thus signals are not set for a departure.”

However, on Monday, German news outlets Bild and Sky claimed that the clubs had finally agreed on a transfer fee, though no price was mentioned. With Holtby on his way, Schalke is believed to be close to signing Lyon midfielder Michel Bastos in a loan deal until 2014.
