Andre Villas-Boas clearly knows who is in his plans and who isn’t. Selling several players and trying to bring in new players as well. Rafael Van Der Vaart is the latest player to depart White Hart Lane as he joins his former club, Hamburg for a fee of £10m.

The Dutch midfielder played for Hamburg back in 2005 until 2008 making 74 appearances and scoring 29 goals. He then left the German side and joined Spanish giants, Real Madrid where he made 58 appearances. 

In 2010 he surprised the world by joining Tottenham Hotspurs on deadline day for a fee of just £8m. He went on to make 63 appearances for the London club and scored 24 goals. 

It is reported that he wanted to leave Tottenham because of missing his family who are all situated in Hamberg. He has been given his old kit number, 23.
