Gareth Bale: Linked with a big-money move away from Tottenham

Tottenham coach Tim Sherwood is "one million per cent" confident that Gareth Bale will remain at White Hart Lane.

The Wales international saw his performances in 2012/13 land him in the PFA Player of the Year award, with a number of talismanic displays taking Spurs agonisingly close to a top-four finish and Champions League football.

Unsurprisingly, Bale's exploits have drawn admiring glances from afar - with Real Madrid reported to be leading a £60million hunt for his signature.

Spurs maintain that the 23-year-old is not for sale, and Sherwood is convinced that Bale is happy to remain with his current employers for the foreseeable future.

He told the Daily Star Sunday: "Gareth's fantastically happy at Tottenham.

"I see him around the training ground every day. He's got a good relationship with the manager and loves his team-mates. They show him the respect that he deserves and he gives it back to them.

"I don't see him banging the door down trying to get a move. I believe one million per cent he will stay.

"There will be a lot of clubs wanting to take Gareth but he's 23 and has good advisors.

"There's a time for him to go overseas or to another Premier League club but I think he needs to stay here."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
