Holtby only joined Spurs a year ago, but has failed to hold down a regular place in Tottenham’s first team, starting only six games in the Premier League this season.

With players such as former Ajax man Christian Eriksen ahead of the 23-year-old in the pecking order, it is believed the player could leave before the transfer window shuts next Friday.

However it is unlikely that the interest from PSV is true, with the club already packed full of options in the midfield areas, with the likes of Zakaria Bakkali, Luciano Narsingh, and Oscar Hiljemark all having trouble breaking into Phillip Cocu’s first eleven.

The players wages (around £3.5 million a year) would also be a problem for the Eindhoven club, who have recently spent a lot of money aquiring Bryan Ruiz from Fulham on loan.

Lewis Holtby may be on the move this week, but don’t expect that to be towards Eindhoven.
