Spurs chairman has spoken out on the futures of Luka Modric and Garth Bale.

 

The White Hart Lane club had a hard time in the summer persuading Modric to stay after Chelsea offered £40million.

 

Harry Redknapp and Levy maintained the Croatian playmaker would not be leaving throughout the summer, but talk has started up again about an offer from Stamford Bridge.

 

There has also been much speculation over the future of winger Gareth Bale – many linking him with a switch Barcelona and Inter.

 

“We have a great squad with exceptional talent and none of the main players will be leaving in January,” said Levy.

 

The Chairman was speaking in response to further speculation that Chelsea were ready to return with another bid for Modric during the transfer window.

 

Modric told the Spurs hierarchy that he wanted to make the move across London to the Blues, but Levy stood firm.

 

Bale has not openly flirted with a transfer, but he did admit to an ambition to play abroad one day.

 

Tottenham have been on a tremendous run recently, their loss to Stoke at the weekend the first in 12 games.

 

Despite sitting fourth in the Premier League, many of Spurs’ fringe players are angling for transfers away from White Hart Lane in January.
