HOTLBY SIGNS FOR JUVE
Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Lewis Holtby has completed his move to Serie A champions Juventus for a fee of £3.4 million.
Holtby had been rumoured to carry a price tag of £6 million but instead saw boss Michael Laudrup accept almost half that price as he agrees a four year deal with the Italians
The German seals a switch to Italy having played a small quantity of 14 games for Spurs’ which led to him becoming unsettled with life in north London.
Holtby has, however, declared he is keen to forget his time at Spurs and focus on what the future has to hold in Turin.
“Tottenham wasn’t a great moment for me and it’s not really something I want to ever dwell on for the sake of my career.
“I know Tottenham have great midfield options, so with that comes limited playing time. I’d rather not reflect on the past and instead would like to look forward to playing for Juve.”
Holtby has expressed his delight at signing for Juventus and has stated that he is keen to show the world what he can do.
“I couldn’t be happier to sit here today representing Juventus. We’re talking about one of the most iconic clubs in the world and I’m very fortunate to have been given the opportunity to pull on this shirt.
“I’m excited about the whole experience and I’m desperate to show you all what I can do. It’s an exciting time to be connected with Juve and I cannot wait for the season to begin.”
