Dutchman aiming to win the title with Tottenham

Tottenham's Rafael van der Vaart says he has no plans to leave the club this summer and is targeting a top four finish. The 29-year-old Holland international has been linked with a move away from White Hart Lane following the dismissal of manager Harry Redknapp last month. But he has played down such talk and insisted the future is bright under new boss Andre Villas-Boas. He said in The Sun: "My place is at Spurs. I want to win the title with this club. Each summer my name appears in the transfer market. "The race for the top four will be a total war from the very first day." Van der Vaart, who joined the north London club two years ago from Real Madrid, added: "The new coach has good plans for me and this is important. "I have heard excellent reports about AVB. "We have very good attacking players and if AVB imposes an offensive system the team could be a real spectacle."
