Tottenham star Rafael van der Vaart has been linked with AC Milan but the Italian club have played down the rumours.

The Holland international has enjoyed a stellar season at White Hart Lane but reports have suggested that he could be departing North London this summer.

But Rossoneri vice-president Adriano Galliani said that the Italian powerhouse would not be pursuing van der Vaart or making any drastic changes to its Serie A-winning squad.

"Van der Vaart? I think not," he told Football Italia.

"If none of our top players leave, which I don't think they will, then Milan will make just one signing - a left-sided midfielder.

"We are sorted in defence with Philippe Mexes and Taye Taiwo. And fine in attack if nobody departs."
