AVB wants Bale rumours ended by new deal
Latest news update:
Andre Villas-Boas has called on Gareth Bale to end speculation about his future by signing a new contract with Tottenham.
Bale last night collected his Football Writers' Association Footballer of the Year award after a remarkable season which has seen him score 30 times for club and country.
The award came less than two weeks after the Professional Footballers Association rewarded him for his efforts by naming him Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year.
The more accolades the Welshman receives, the more rumours persist about a potential departure to Real Madrid, who have been monitoring the forward's progress this season.
Bale is contracted until 2016, but the speculation will surely continue well in to the summer unless he pens a new deal with the club.
"It would be good for him (to sign a new contract)," the Tottenham manager said.
"I think he deserves it for the season he's had. Obviously we could put to bed every single speculation that's coming out.
"It would be excellent and I think a reward for what he has achieved this season."
