Holtby convinced by Villas-Boas, says agent

January 05, 2013

Andre Villas-Boas was the key factor in Lewis Holtby's decision to join Tottenham from Schalke, according to his agent.

The 22-year-old will join Spurs in the summer on a free transfer, the north London club announced on Friday, and his representative has stated that the Portuguese boss was the deciding factor in his destination. 

"Schalke made Lewis a very good offer, we know that," Marcus Noack told "But this decision is not against Schalke. 

"We had a lot of offers from every top league in Europe. If you look at the whole package, then Tottenham was the best choice. 

"Andre Villas-Boas is especially convincing. This is a top coach. The decision to leave Schalke and join Tottenham came in mid-December. And it was very hard for us to choose." 

Noack added that a transfer to Spurs in the January transfer window had not been discussed. 

He continued: "The agreement says: [in the] summer. If a winter move was possible, I can't say right now, because we didn't talk about that."
