Redknapp: Tottenham owe Van der Vaart arrival to Levy

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp admits chairman Daniel Levy drove their late deal for former Real Madrid midfielder Rafael van Vaart.

Although manager Redknapp had mentioned him to Levy over the summer, it was the Spurs supremo who made the move for the 27-year-old.

Such matters have been resigning matters for managers in the past but Redknapp is delighted with this particular instance of interference.

"Yeah, probably," he said. "He was on a list that we'd bandied about three months ago.

"I watched him play for Holland against Norway in Amsterdam and liked him.

"He's a good player and he'll link in with how we want to play."
