AC Milan not reading into link with Tottenham's van der Vaart

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."
