Harry Redknapp maintains Gareth Bale stance


Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp remains confident that in-form winger Gareth Bale will not be tempted to leave White Hart Lane in the near future.

The 21-year-old Wales international has hit the headlines with a couple of dazzling displays against Internazionale in the Champions League, raising talk of interest from a number of Europe's elite clubs.

However, Redknapp told The Sun:"It doesn't worry me, it's great. Spurs are being noticed and one of our players is getting the whole of Europe talking.

"I understand the attention on Gareth, it's the nature of football.

"But, trust me, he won't be leaving Spurs – even if we were to fail to qualify for the Champions League this season.

"I don't think Gareth is at all interested in being anywhere else.

"Even if we didn't make the top four at the end of this season, he wouldn't come knocking on my door demanding a move to a club in the Champions League.

"Gareth isn't like that and, like me, he knows this is a club on the up."
