New Spurs signing Lewis Holtby says he is "living the dream" at Tottenham.

"I have been living my dream for the past few days," he wrote in his blog published on

"I am playing at an absolute top club in the Premier League."

"It has been overwhelming since arriving in the motherland of football," 

"The day the transfer went through, I left for London with just a small suitcase and a few hours later, I was already on the Tottenham training ground, getting the traditional kick up the backside from my new team mates by means of welcoming me.

"That's the way things are here in London - hard but hearty."
