Denmark calling for Van der Vaart?

Rafael van der Vaart has fuelled speculation that he could join Midtjylland after the Real Betis midfielder was spotted at the Danish club’s stadium on Sunday.

According to AS, Van der Vaart was among those in attendance at the MCH Arena as Midtjylland defeated Silkeborg 3-0.

However, his high salary and reluctance to accept a pay cut has already seen a move to English side Reading cool off.

The Danes were interested in signing the 34-year-old last summer, before they were beaten to the chase by Betis.

Midtjylland, meanwhile, have sold young forward Pione Sisto to Celta Vigo for a reported €5m.

The Denmark starlet, who was born in Uganda to South Sudanese parents, will join up with his new teammates once the small issues of a medical and signing of a contract are completed.
