Tottenham ace van der Vaart keeps door ajar for Holland return

Tottenham attacker Rafael van der Vaart has confirmed that he will again play in Holland's Erdivisie.

The Dutch international started his career with Ajax before moving on to Hamburg, Real Madrid and then Spurs and although he is content in North London, he insists he will return to his home domestic competition.

"I see it as an obligation to play football once again in the Netherlands," van der Vaart told Voetbal International.

"I have a feeling I have to give something back to the Eredivisie, for what it has meant to me."
