Holland international midfielder Rafael van der Vaart has ruled out a move to Spurs.

The Hamburg playmaker - believed to be a target for several sides - says Tottenham 'are not the club I want to go to'.

While the international has not ruled out a move to a club which excites him, it seems more likely he will stay in the Bundesliga.

He told Sportweek: "The interest has been there for some time already, but they (Tottenham) are not the club I want to go to. Tottenham are not a club I want to swap Hamburg for.

"The chance that I will stay at HSV is really big. As long as no team comes by which makes me immediately excited, I see no reason to leave. And so far none of those clubs have called us."
