Gareth Bale has signed a new four-and-a-half year contract at Tottenham.
The 21-year-old winger has earned a global reputation this season after some outstanding displays in the Champions League, highlighted by his hat-trick against Inter Milan at the San Siro.
Manager Harry Redknapp told the club's website: "It's great to have Gareth sign a new contract at the club. He is a fantastic player and the type of player we need to be keeping at Spurs."
Redknapp added: "Gareth is now one of the top left sided players in the world, he really is an amazing talent and can only get better. He is a smashing lad as well which is equally as important."
