Van der Vaart backing Hamburg bid for Man City striker Santa Cruz

Hamburg midfielder Rafael van der Vaart is backing their move for Manchester City striker Roque Santa Cruz.

Santa Cruz has also been linked with Mark Hughes' Stoke City, though HSV are favourites for the free agent.

"He would further help us with his form and his quality," Van der Vaart told Bild.

"He is very strong and cool when finishing. A great striker."
