Tottenham midfielder Van der Vaart poised to join Hamburg
Tottenham midfielder Rafael van der Vaart is on the verge of joining Hamburg, according to the player's agent.

The German club has had a long standing interest in re-signing its former talisman, and had an earlier offer for the player rejected and described as 'direspectful' by Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas.

Van der Vaart's agent confirmed the 29-year-old was on his was to Hamburg for a medical, but also revealed that no fee has yet been agreed between the two clubs - but remains confident that a deal will be struck before the window closes.

"I can confirm that Rafael is on his way to Hamburg now for a medical," Robert Geerlings told Press Association Sport.

"No fee has been agreed, but when a player goes for a medical it is clear that the two parties intend to find a solution."
