Milan interested in Van der Vaart

AC Milan are pondering making a bid for Tottenham ace Rafael van der Vaart.

The Dutch International moved to White Hart Lane last season, hours before the 2010 summer transfer window closed and made an impressive start to his Tottenham career.

Van der Vaart is battling for first team football following the summer arrival of Emmanuel Adebayor with Redknapp favouring the Togo international partnering Jermain Defoe up front.

Redknapp may consider offloading the former Real Madrid star for a reported £12m, which would represent a sizeable profit on the £8m they paid last year.
