Mauricio Pochettino inadvertently announced that Fulham have signed Lewis Holtby from Tottenham

An eye-grabbing tweet hit the wires on Thursday afternoon as it was announced that Fulham have signed Lewis Holtby from Tottenham.

Sam Cunningham, who works for the Daily Mail, broke the news on his Twitter feed saying:

Should the news prove accurate, it will be a major turn up for the books in the Holtby transfer saga this winter.

For weeks the Spurs midfielder has been linked with a return to Germany with the likes of Schalke and Borussia Dortmund supposedly wanting the Lillywhite.

Rumours that Fulham were chasing the German U21 captain first came about on Wednesday amid noise that Dimitar Berbatov could be on his way back to Spurs.
