Spurs have enjoyed considerable success with Dutch acquisitions this season, with Van der Vaart having been a revelation since joining the club last summer.

His arrival has brought added creativity to the ranks, while the Holland international also has a keen eye for goal.

Having benefited considerably from snapping up the Dutchman, Harry Redknapp may be prepared to tread a similar path in the January transfer window.

Dutch midfielder Van Bommel is a player attracting plenty of interest, with his contract running down at Bayern Munich.

A switch elsewhere has been touted, with a number of clubs said to be waiting in the wings.

Tottenham have been mentioned as one possible destination for Van Bommel and he would be welcomed with open arms by his fellow countryman Van der Vaart.


"He is a super player with lots of experience, who would help any team," he said.

"Tottenham want to take the next step to get to the same level as our local rivals Arsenal.

"I think that is possible. Therefore we can use good players."

While keen to sell Spurs to potential new arrivals, Van der Vaart has again reiterated his long-term commitment to the club, following a difficult spell in Spain.

"After my time at Real Madrid, which was not a very happy one, I have rediscovered my love for the game at Tottenham," he told Sport Bild magazine.

"My heart is now at Tottenham. It is not a huge club but rather a real traditional club, like I have already learned to love at Hamburg or Ajax.

"I feel settled in London and would like to play here for many years."
