Tottenham Hotspur's Rafael van der Vaart hints that he could leave the club for the Dutch league.

Tottenham Hotspur's Rafael van der Vaart has hinted that he could leave White Hart Lane and return to play in his native Holland.

The attacking midfielder, who still has two years remaining on his Spurs contact, said that he feels obliged to play in the Dutch Eredivisie again at some point.

He told Voetbal International: "I see it as an obligation to play football once again in the Netherlands.

"I have a feeling I have to give something back to the Eredivisie, for what it has meant to me."

van der Vaart hit 15 goals in all competitions during the last campaign, and has 11 to his name this season. He joined Spurs from Real Madrid in 2010.
