It's been confirmed that English Premier League side Tottenham have signed Dutch International Rafael van der Vaart from Real Madrid, beating the transfer day deadline.

The 27-year-old midfielder, a member of the Netherlands team beaten in this year's World Cup final by Spain, was poised to join Bayern Munich on Monday but when the deal fell through Spurs moved in for him just before the transfer window was due to close a day later. Van der Vaart began his career at Ajax Amsterdam then joined Real Madrid from Hamburg in 2008 but dropped down the pecking order following Kaka's arrival from AC Milan last year.
