Esbjerg FB has confirmed the signing of Rafael van der Vaart on a one-year deal. 

Van der Vaart was contracted to FC Midtjylland but only played seven minutes in their league last season and became a free agent this summer.

The 35-year-old trained with PEC Zwolle but wanted a return to Denmark in order to be closer to his girlfriend, who plays handball in the country. Esbjerg offered van der Vaart the opportunity to join them and a one-year contract has now been signed.

The former Ajax, Real Madrid, Hamburg and Tottenham star will work under Dutch coach  John Lammers at Esbjerg FB.
