Tottenham Hotspurs’ Dutch midfielder Rafael Van Der Vaart has refused to rule out a return to Germany in order to be closer to his wife according to reports in the Metro.
The Metro references a recent conversation between the 29-year-old and German newspaper ‘Bild’ with Van Der Vaart saying “I don’t know. Actually, I want to stay at Tottenham. But in football, you never know’ when asked about the possibility of switching clubs.
Schalke have emerged as the front-runners in any speculated deal due to his wife’s work, just an hour away from Schalke’s training ground, though its not thought Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is willing to sell the player.
