Bale Rejects Tottenham Move!

Bale has Rejected Spurs Offer

BBC Radio Solent are reporting that Gareth Bale has decided to stay at Southampton until at least the summer.

It had been widely reported that Saints accepted a bid of £10million from Tottenham late last week but it now appears Bale has rejected spurs offer.

It seems that Gareth Bale has opted to stay at Southampton to continue his development until at least this summer.

Maybe Bale's decision has been helped by the example of Theo Walcott who left Saints this time last year for the big time and hasn`t made an impact since.

This is obviously fantastic news for Southampton Football Club and its fans, without doubt Gareth Bale is one of Saints best players and to lose the player now certainly wouldn`t help Southampton`s push for promotion.

Of course at time of writing there is still more then 10 hours until the transfer window slams shut, there is plenty of time for things to change!

Thank F*#K it's all over with! "BOL#*CKS to him, they was 'taking the *****' anyway... that kind of money, for a player; who has NOT played 1 minute of premiership football (Anyone remember 'the tea-boy' Wallcott?) and then wanting him back on loan??? "STICK HIM UP YOUR ARSES"! I would've loved to secure Ashley Young... But I will settle for the impressive, bargain- priced Giles Barnes, the skillful Nene and I would love to see 'Teddy'... home once more (With a coaching role offered... at the end)!

I would love to of seen him at spurs from now, however hope he does well with you lot, good luck. Just hope we can grab him in the summer, or if not him another decent LB.

Expect your management to show him the door because Manure only offer 3mil cash for him - then add ons for international appearances etc - I don't think that the addons interest your money hungry board though they want cold cash and that is that- See you at midnight Garry- Oh and don't forget to bring your teddy bear with you that boy lennon is frighteningly fast - in fact he is so fast he may even induce a bout of rectoplasms for you lot if we ever get the chance to play you in the TOP FLIGHT hahahahahahahahahahahahahah

i dont think its not a done deal. can you buy someone and loan them back to the same club dont think you can. we couldnt do that with robbo a few seasons back. plus burley on sky sports didnt or wouldnt say bale turned spurs down. so maybe its a way of getting round that and he will be set for a move to spurs once the season is over. might be wrong and his waiting for a move to man united and a big pay day sitting on a bench. saints fans should worry because come the summer the price will be alot less and his contract is running out.

can the saints board really afford to see him walk out for next to nothing? sir alex might just be sitting at old traf with a big smile on his face.

He can't walk out for next to nothing, even if he stays for the length of his contract we would get compensation if he walked out afterwards

Good decision for you this is, keep him and he will help you get you promoted, the money is OK but when it means that much to any club you have to keep your better players.
