Tottenham midfielder Lewis Holtby has completed a permanent move to Hamburg for an undisclosed fee.

The 24-year-old Germany international, who arrived from Schalke in 2013 for £1.5m, played 42 games for Spurs.

After a loan spell at Fulham, he spent much of last season on loan at Bundesliga club Hamburg, who exercised an option to make the deal permanent.

Brazil midfielder Paulinho left Tottenham for Chinese club Guangzhou Evergrande for £9.9m on Tuesday.
