Tottenham have just confirmed that Rafael Van Der Vaart is now a Tottenham player. In the last few minuted the club have announced that the Premier League have given the transfer the all clear.
Van Der Vaart joins from Real Madrid in a deal worth around £8million, the deal was done late on transfer deadline day yesterday but questions remained over whether it was completed in time. It turned out that Tottenham missed the deadline because of technical issues to which the Premier League investigated and have now given the move the all clear.
Van Der Vaart is free to play in the Champions League group stages and brings with him invaluable experience of playing at the highest level.
The reason he was shipped out of Madrid is because he fell behind Ozil, Kaka and Ronaldo, so don’t under estimate the guys ability, you would have to be extra special to get in front of those three. Van Der Vaart is happy to be joining the Premiership and see’s it as a new challenge. I think this guy needs a stable club and to be adored by the fans and we can offer him both.

The guy is a class act and will add goals to our midfield, he will also support the striker for when Harry plays his 4-5-1 formation. He is a player we have been linked with in the past and a player I personally have admired and hoped he would join. He started out at Ajax and then after much hype about his talent moved to Hamburg in 2005 before being sold to Real Madrid in 2008. If you ask me this is a bargain buy, the guy is capable of scoring 15+ goals from midfield in a season if used right. Van Der Vaart will now be included in Tottenham’s 25 man squad which will be submitted to the Premier League in the next couple of hours.Follow @TrfficTottenham
