Van der Vaart targets trophies with Tottenham

Tottenham's new signing Rafael van der Vaart is confident that he will be able to secure a trophy in his first season in England.

• Defoe setback for Spurs

Van der Vaart, 27, joined Spurs in an £8 million deal from Real Madrid on transfer deadline day, bringing an end to a two-year stay at the Bernabeu in which he failed to establish himself as a senior player and did not win a trophy.

In fact, the Netherlands playmaker has not held a trophy aloft since winning the Eredivisie with Ajax in 2004 but hopes his move to White Hart Lane can spark a change in fortunes.

"I think we can win, with a bit of luck," Van der Vaart said. "We have a lot of talented players. We are a young team but for sure we can win things.

"Tottenham is a great team, a big club and I'm really happy to be playing here. It was my first day today [Thursday] and the training session was a nice one.

"We played a little game and it was nice to know everybody and I think we have a great team. So it will be a great season."

Van der Vaart also hopes that Tottenham can usurp their great rivals Arsenal and finish ahead of the Gunners in the league this year.

"Why not? Arsenal have a great team also with a lot of young players but our squad is not worse than Arsenal's," he said. "I think we will have a chance to win against them and also, over the season, we can try to beat them."

Meanwhile, Tottenham have allowed midfielder Danny Rose to join Bristol City on a loan deal until the end of the season. Rose hit the headlines last season when scoring a stunning goal against Arsenal.
