The Germany international, who only moved to the north London club from Bundesliga outfit Schalke 04 last year, was shipped out on a six-month loan deal to the Cottagers during the January transfer window.

However, despite proving a hit at Craven Cottage, Holty will head back across the capital next month, with the 23-year-old also keen to work with Louis van Gaal if as reported the Dutchman does replace manager Tim Sherwood at the club next season.

“There is little sense in talking about other clubs since I have a long-term contract at Tottenham,” Holtby told Goal.com.

‘The status quo is that I will go back to Spurs after the summer holidays. I can’t tell you what is going to happen until then. My agent takes care of everything and as far as I know his mobile is always turned on.

“I loved playing for Tottenham and I would like to fulfil my contract there. But at first it is important to avoid relegation with Fulham.

“There is always lots of talk. Louis van Gaal is an exceptional coach, you can’t deny that.

“He led big teams to big success. I don’t know whether he will be the new coach and of course it is not for me to decide. I don’t want to think about it now.”
