The 22-year-old will make the move in the summer on a free transfer after being at the German club for four years.

“Schalke made Lewis a very good offer, we know that,” Marcus Noack told Goal.com. “But this decision is not against Schalke.

“We had a lot of offers from every top league in Europe. If you look at the whole package, then Tottenham was the best choice.

“Andre Villas-Boas is especially convincing. This is a top coach. The decision to leave Schalke and join Tottenham came in mid-December. And it was very hard for us to choose.”
