Tottenham Hotspur winger Gareth Bale has revealed his delight at penning a new four-year contract with the club.

The 22-year-old has been heavily linked with a move away from White Hart Lane, with speculation that the club’s failure to reach the Champions League could lead to a summer exit.

However, Bale has given a long-term commitment to the manager-less club, and is confident that the young squad can go on to achieve big things in the coming seasons.

“It’s great to sign again. I love the club and the fans and I want to play my part in trying to get us back into the Champions League – where we belong,” he told the official Spurs website.

“We’ve a good, young squad and we need to work together to get back on the biggest stage again. Hopefully we can do that.”

Under Harry Redknapp, the north London outfit just missed out on a return to Europe’s elite club competition last season, failing to qualify despite finishing fourth in the Premier League.

Chelsea’s final victory over Bayern Munich relegated Spurs to the Europa League once again, and would ultimately play a role in the dismissal of Redknapp earlier this month.

Those two key points haven’t persuaded the 33-cap Welshman to look elsewhere to further his career however, and Bale predicts that exciting times lay ahead for everyone involved at Tottenham.

"We’ve a good, young squad that is still learning, everyone gets along and we’ve got the potential to challenge right at the top of the Premier League,” Bale added.

"It’s exciting times at the Club and I’m enjoying it. I don’t see any reason to leave."
