The Dutch playmaker has emerged as a target for the Super Hoops in recent weeks, with manager Harry Redknapp understood to be keen to set up a reunion with him.
‘Arry snapped up the now 31-year-old in 2010 while in charge of Spurs, and the pair enjoyed a productive spell with the Lilywhites making it into the Champions League quarter-finals with the silky passer netting over 20 goals in the Premier League over two seasons.
Van der Vaart left England in 2012 to re-join Hamburg, but with the German side having only narrowly avoided relegation last term there is talk of him moving on.
Although the former Real Madrid and Ajax man says that he hasn’t been talking to QPR, he opened the door for a switch by revealing that he loved working under Redknapp in the past:
“Harry Redknapp has not been in touch with me. He has not phoned me.” He is quoted by Sky Sports.
“In football you never know, but so far we have not been in touch.
“Harry Redknapp and I enjoyed a really great relationship back at Tottenham. He is a top-quality manager.
“I was in great form back then. I scored 12 (Premier League) goals in one season and I netted 13 in the other season.”
