Out-in-cold Spurs star admits he could be forced to leave

first_img1 Out of favour Tottenham midfielder Lewis Holtby admits he could be forced to leave the club before the close of the transfer window.The former Schalke star has been linked with a return to the Bundesliga with Hamburg, and his lack of first-team opportunities at White Hart Lane so far this season could well make that a possibility.Holtby finished last season on loan at Fulham and has found himself on the fringes at Spurs once more under new manager Mauricio Pocchetino at the start of this campaign.And he has not ruled out a move before Monday’s 11pm deadline.“We’re just going to have to see what happens in the next few days,” he told t-online.de. “I’m a young player and I want to be playing all the time. That’s very important for me, for my development and for my career.“Preferably, I would stay here with Tottenham of course and that’s why I really hope that I get a chance.” Lewis Holtby last_img read more


Gomis considers Swansea future amid Arsenal, Newcastle and Crystal Palace interest

first_imgBafetimbi Gomis admits he is considering his Swansea future, amid rumours of interest from Arsenal, Newcastle and Crystal Palace.The Frenchman, who joined the Swans on a free transfer from Lyon last summer, has grown frustrated by a lack of playing time during the first half of the season.Although Wilfried Bony’s exit to Manchester City should open the door for him to become first choice, Gomis indicated he feels let down by the Swans and is considering his options.Arsenal, Newcastle and Crystal Palace have all been linked with a move for the 29-year-old in the January transfer window.“When Bony was here, it was expected that I would also play in a certain number of games, but that was not the case,” the France international told Canal Plus.“I want to play in a certain number of matches. Today I ask myself many questions. I need time to reflect because what was said was not respected. At my age, it is difficult to spend my time sitting on the bench.”Gomis – who has made 19 league appearances for Swansea, 13 of them as a substitute – said he and his representatives planned to hold talks with Swansea before making any decision but the 29-year-old may not easily be persuaded if he feels promises have already been broken.“I have been approached by clubs,” he added.“For the moment I am concentrating on Swansea. Me leaving? It is possible.” 1 Bafetimbi Gomis in action for Swansea last_img read more
