Welsh winger will stay for Europe.
Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas has been handed fresh hope over the future of star winger Gareth Bale, The Express reports.
The 23-year-old has been linked with a number of clubs since rising to prominence but Villas-Boas has been told that he will stay at White Heart Lane if they qualify for next season’s Champions League.
“That’s the information I have. The club is committed to keeping the best assets. That’s the only way we can ensure we are in the top four every year. Gareth is part of that project bearing in mind he has been amazing this season.”
Bales has been in electric form again this season, though an ankle injury last month has seen him miss a few games and struggle to get back to his best.
Spurs are currently sat in fifth place and missed the chance to leapfrog Chelsea into fourth by failing to beat Wigan, scraping a 2-2 draw.
The club’s quest for fourth place has now taken on a new meaning. Spurs have been labelled as a ‘one man club’ numerous times over the course of the campaign and AVB will want the opportunity to buy new players and build the team around Bale.
“The club is committed to keeping the best assets,” he said.
