Burley denies Spurs link to Bale
Gareth Bale
Bale is Wales' youngest ever international player
Southampton boss George Burley has denied reports that Tottenham have tabled a bid for full-back Gareth Bale.

The 17-year-old Wales international is being chased by a host of top Premiership clubs but Spurs were said to be the first to make an offer.

Burley said: "There's all sorts of speculation but no official bid has been received from Tottenham.

"We want to keep Gareth for as long as possible because he's one of the best young players in the country."

Bale has scored five goals in 21 Championship appearances for the Saints and has also attracted attention from Arsenal and Chelsea.
