Schalke have revealed that they have rejected a bid from Tottenham to bring Lewis Holtby to the club this month.
Holtby will move to the Lane on a free transfer in July but after Sandro was ruled out for the rest of the season, Spurs made an offer to try to bring him in now. According to reports in Germany, Holtby put in an impressive shift during Schalke’s 5-4 win against Hanover 96 on Friday where he scored the matchwinner and set up two more.
Schalke boss Horst Heldt said: “Tottenham have made an offer, which was not acceptable, therefore it was rejected.
“The transfer window is still open and Lewis has not become any cheaper.”
Meanwhile Holtby said: “I am not going to just piss off without busting my arse for the team,”
“I will give my all for Schalke until the last second. Everything else must be decided by the clubs.”
