LONDON (REUTERS) - Fulham have signed the German international midfielder Lewis Holtby on loan from Tottenham Hotspur until the end of the season, the club confirmed on Friday.

Holtby, 23, who has a German mother and English father and has played three times for Germany, joined Tottenham from Schalke 04 in the January transfer window a year ago but has been unable to establish a regular place in the first-team.

He scored his only Premier League goal with a spectacular long-range strike at Craven Cottage to give Spurs a 2-1 win over Fulham last month. He also scored twice for Spurs in the Europa League.

A Fulham spokesman said that he had trained with his new club on Friday and would be staying until the end of the season.
