Levy insists he will not sell Bale

Daniel Levy insists the club will not be selling star man Gareth Bale. Bale, 21, has become one of the hottest properties in European football following a string of impressive performances this season, most notably his displays against Champions League holders Inter Milan.

The Wales international has subsequently been linked with a move away from White Hart Lane, but Levy has no intention of parting with the player. Speaking at the club’s AGM, Levy said:

“I’ve never deemed us to be a selling club, if you look at the big transfers which have taken place since I’ve been chairman.

“Both Berbatov and Michael Carrick had two years left on their contract, both players wanted to go and that was the reason they were sold.

“But in the case of Gareth he’s got a long contract and I can assure you he will not be sold.”

And Levy went on to admit that the January transfer window will be quiet one for Spurs, whose main goal is to trim what is a bloated first-team squad. Levy added:

“The January transfer window is again upon us. We currently have the largest squad in the Premier League.

“We shall look to rationalise… Overall, we do not anticipate a busy transfer window.”
