Lewis Holtby will undergo a medical with Hamburg on Monday morning as he moves closer to sealing a one-year loan switch from Tottenham, Goal understands.
Earlier this week Goal revealed Hamburg were weighing up a move for the 23-year-old as a possible replacement for Rafael van der Vaart, who has been linked with a possible reunion with Harry Redknapp at QPR as well as a move to Turkey.

Holtby moved to White Hart Lane in January 2013 in a £1.5 million deal from Schalke but failed to establish himself in the starting XI, and a year later was loaned to Fulham to help in the Cottagers' unsuccessful bid to preserve their Premier League status.
This season the Germany international has found himself behind the likes of Christian Eriksen, Erik Lamela and Paulinho in the Spurs midfield pecking order and last week revealed he had grown frustrated with the situation.
"We're just going to have to see what happens in the next few days and weeks," he told t-online.de when asked about the possibility of a January move.
"I'm a young player and I want to be playing all the time. That's very important for me, for my development and for my career."
