Chelsea rejected chance of landing Spurs signing Van der Vaart

Chelsea passed up on the prospect of landing new Tottenham signing Rafael van der Vaart on transfer deadline day.

The London Evening Standard says the former Real Madrid star was originally heading to Bayern Munich after a £10m fee was agreed, but the deal broke down yesterday.

It is understood that Chelsea, as well as Tottenham, were then alerted to the midfielder's availability, but the Blues were not interested as it was not an area they felt needed strengthening.
