Bale reveals Spurs happiness
Tottenham winger Gareth Bale has played down speculation that he wanted a move away from White Hart Lane this summer.
The Welsh international is adamant that the thought of leaving Spurs never crossed his mind despite rumoured interest from a number of top clubs across Europe.
Barcelona tried to secure the signature of 23-year-old last season but the north London outfit were in no mood to entertain the idea and rewarded him with a lucrative four-year-contract in the close season.
Even the departures of Harry Redknapp and Luka Modric in recent months has done nothing to make Bale think twice about his future or indeed the club's ambitions.
He said: "No. I've always been focused on my game, playing football, and I'm enjoying myself here at the moment so there's no reason to go anywhere.
"I'm enjoying my football, we've got a great squad now and hopefully next season we can get Champions League football, where we should be.
"We've got a stronger squad than we did at the start of the season. Our plan is to win every game and we'll be trying to do that."
He is also backing Spurs to go from strength to strength in the wake of Sunday's 3-1 win over Reading which earn them their first three point haul of the season.
Bale added: "We went on a run last season and there's no reason why we can't do it this year."
