German international up for the fight.
Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Lewis Holtby has insisted that he is going to stay at White Heart Lane and fight for his place in the starting XI, talkSPORT reports.
The German international has been linked with a move away from the club just nine months after joining following the arrivals of Paulinho, Etienne Capoue, Nacer Chadli, Christian Eriksen and Erik Lamela over the summer.
The 22-year-old has yet to start a league game for the north London outfit as he appears to have fallen down the pecking order behind the new boys that arrived in recent weeks.
However, he has insisted that he is up for the fight of winning a place in the squad and that leaving never even crossed his mind.
“I don’t know where these rumours have come from. I missed nine weeks for Tottenham and missed the pre-season and it has been a tough summer.
“We are determined to show the gaffer that everyone is needed at the club and everyone is ready to play in the big games. I am very pleased to be in this squad.
“You need a big squad if you want to challenge for trophies and be strong in every competition. I think we are going to get some very good results this season.
“I knew that Tottenham was going to be a big club in Europe and to be a part of that, it just makes your game better.”
