The Germany international moved to the west London club on a six-month loan deal on transfer deadline day after failing to win a regular starting berth at White Hart Lane under either previous head coach Andre Villas-Boas or his predecessor Tim Sherwood.

However, the 23-year-old has now come out to deny recent suggestions that he was forced to quit the north Londoners due to the poor levels of his displays for the club since he joined Spurs from Bundesliga outfit Schalke 04 in last year’s January transfer window.

The attacking midfielder, who was also being chased by the likes of German duo Schalke and Borussia Dortmund last month, has since gone on to appear in just the one match for the Cottagers since his switch across the capital.

Meanwhile, during his 12-month stay at White Hart Lane, Holtby managed to hit the back of the net on three occasions in total in his 39 matches in all competitions for Spurs, including only the one strike in his 24 Premier League outings for the club.
