Van der Vaart to stay at Real Madrid

Dutch international Rafael van der Vaart is to stay at Spanish club Real Madrid despite earlier reports he is to be sold, magazine Voetbal International reports.

Real had been expected to sell most of its squad of six Dutch players to help pay for this year’s round of highly-expensive signings.
So far Klaas-Jan Huntelaar has gone to AC Milan, Arjen Robben to Bayern Munich and Wesley Sneijder to Inter Milan.
Defender Royston Drenthe, who joined the Spanish club in 2007 and Ruud Van Nistelrooy who signed in 2006 also remain at Real Madrid.
