Lewis Holtby says that he is "pleased" to be a member of the Tottenham Hotspur squad, despite the influx of new midfielders during the summer transfer window.
Lewis Holtby has revealed that he is happy to fight for his place in Tottenham Hotspur's starting lineup.
Manager Andre Villas-Boas signed five midfielders during the transfer window as Paulinho, Etienne Capoue, Nacer Chadli, Christian Eriksen and Erik Lamela arrived to strengthen the squad.
However, Holtby, who joined the club in January from Schalke 04, says that the added competition for places is necessary if Spurs are to challenge for trophies this season.
"I am very pleased to be in this squad," he told The Express. "You need a big squad if you want to challenge for trophies and be strong in every competition."
Holtby has yet to start a league match this season.
