Holtby has given the Cottagers' a needed lift offensively since joining on loan in January, scoring one goal and assisting on three others. His next shot to play comes the following weekend against Fulham.

Holtby finished a corner kick into the back of the net during Saturday's 1-3 loss to Cardiff City.

Holtby was left out of the lineup in Fulham's previous match against Chelsea for strategic reasons. The goal was his first since joining Fulham, but his forward-pressing playing style can make him a good fantasy option for the rest of the season.

Holtby started Saturday's match against Chelsea from the bench for the first time in Fulham's last five matches. Fulham manager Felix Magath said he was left out of the starting XI for strategic reasons, the London Evening Standard reports. Magath felt his "forward thinking" style of play would not match up well against Chelsea. Holtby eventually entered the match in the 62nd minute but was not able to do much offensively.

Despite only picking up one assist since joining Fulham, Holtby has created many chances for the Cottagers. However, the turbulence at manager has led to some uncertainty about playing time for many players.

Holtby has officially joined Fulhma on loan from Tottenham for the rest of the season.

Holtby moved to Tottenham from Bundesliga side Schalke during the 2013 winter transfer window and hasn't gotten nearly as much playing time as many expected. That issue should easily be addressed with his move to Fulham, who are looking for any kind of offensive spark these days.

Borussia Dortmund look to be the leading candidates to sign Holtby from Tottenham before the transfer window closes after Schalke withdrew their interest, according to the Daily Mail.

Dortmund is suffering from injuries to a number of players, and trail Bayern Munich by 14 points in the Bundesliga. Tottenham are willing to listen to transfer bids for the midfielder.
