Tottenham midfielder Rafael van der Vaart has been ruled out for six weeks after suffering a hamstring tear, his club have said.

The Holland international suffered the injury in his left leg in last weekend's 5-1 home defeat by Manchester City.

He has since been diagnosed with a hamstring tear after an MRI scan and is not expected to return until the middle of October.
