No exit plan for van the man

It had been suggested the Holland international could move on this

month, with AC Milan leading the chase for his signature. The

28-year-old has encountered the odd run-in with Harry Redknapp, but

he insists everything is “fine” with his manager. The former Real

Madrid and Hamburg man believes Redknapp is doing an amazing job at

the helm. Van der Vaart is aware of the rumours with Spurs flying

high near the top of the table – and he does not want to miss out

on the title chase. “It’s not true that I could be leaving in

January,” explained van der Vaart. “Of course there are rumours

when you are third in the table and you play good football. “People

are always going to look and they are interested in the players of

Tottenham, but this season nobody wants to leave – we are close to

something special. “Of course I want to stay here. Everybody feels

that we have a great team and it is really fun to play here – we

have big players, experienced players and Harry is doing a great

job. “Sometimes you can have a little problem with the manager, but

you talk to each other and everything is fine. “Harry is doing an

amazing job at Spurs and this season it feels that something more

can happen.”
