Spurs have announced that playmaker/forward Rafael Van Der Vaart will be returning to Hamburg, where he played from 2005-2008.
Of course, thanks to the miracle that is Twitter, we can go right to the source for reaction.

Of course we're most interested in the fantasy implications involved. At first blush, this seems to nail Gylfi Sigurdsson into the starting playmaker role, behind Emmanuel Adebayor. However, with João Moutinho and Mousa Dembele being added to the squad, it does become a question of who plays, and where. I would assume that Gylfi is a safe choice this weekend, but we'll have to watch the Spur's side take shape over the next few weeks.
