Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas has revealed that the club is in talks with Gareth Bale's agent, over a new contract for the Wales star.
The 24-year-old, from Cardiff, has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid this summer - with £80m even mentioned as a potential transfer fee.
Bale is currently contracted to Spurs until 2016.
Villas-Boas said: "There is ongoing contact between the club and his agent. Talks are ongoing but that doesn't mean there is an agreement. At the moment we're confident that the player is under contract at Tottenham, as was done last year."
