Gareth Bale: Hints that he will stay at Tottenham next season

The Welsh winger scored the winner for Spurs against Sunderland on Sunday but Arsenal's victory over Newcastle saw Tottenham miss out on a fourth-place finish in the Premier League.

That led to much speculation that Bale would seek a move to another club in order to test himself on Europe's biggest stage but those claims appear to be wide of the mark.

"We fought hard this season, the team and the manager have been great," the 23-year-old said in an interview with Spurs TV Online.

"We have got the record points for the club in the Premier League. That would normally be enough to qualify for the Champions League, but it's not meant to be again.

"It's disappointing, but we will pick ourselves up again. We will just have to regroup this season and give it another go.

"To play the way we have also but to miss out on our objective (Champions League qualification) is very disappointing.

"It was great to get the win (against Sunderland) but the clouds just came over and made it a little bit duller, but it's something we have to learn from, we are a young squad, and we will take it in to the future."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
