Bale happy at Spurs for the time being

Gareth Bale says ‘for the time being’ he’s happy to remain with Tottenham Hotspur. This comes after reports at the weekend saying the winger wouldn’t extend his contract beyond the current expiry of 2015. The 22-year-old has also recently been linked with moves to Barcelona, Manchester City and Real Madrid.

The Welshman told ESPN: “At the moment we are going in the right direction and it is a very exciting time.

“We have quite a young squad and we’re still building. We have a new training ground coming next year and there are plans for a new stadium so it is all heading in the right direction.

“For the time being I’m happy at Tottenham, we’re playing good football. We are right up there and closer to challenging for the Premier League. There is no reason why we can’t keep progressing.”
