Hamburg have again confirmed that Rafael van der Vaart is not for sale.
Valencia made an offer of €14milion for the Dutchman earlier this week and the player admitted that he was keen to move.
However, the Bundesliga club have insisted he will not be going anywhere this summer.
“We are not selling him. Rafael will have to live with it,” said sports director Dietmar Beiersdorfer.
Hamburg face Honved in the Uefa Cup on Thursday and if van der Vaart plays he will be ineligible to feature for another club in Europe this season.
