Reto on loan
Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).
Reto Ziegler has joined Hamburg on loan.
The Swiss international midfielder made great progress last season following his signing from Grasshoppers and made 31 first team appearances - scoring one goal.
Opportunities have been limited for the 19-year-old so far this season and he now heads to Germany to further his experience. Martin Jol has no doubts that Reto is still a player for our future.
"Reto is a very big talent, but we have Andy Reid and Edgar Davids in his position. He had a strong season for us but he now needs to play more games. With this being possible at another very good team it is an excellent opportunity for Reto.
"He is a young lad and I have agreed with Reto that it will be good for him to go away and get more experience, but he is still a player for our future."
