Bale Rejects Tottenham Move!

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!

To be honest i never got that story of the loan back, as far as i know a buy and loan back is agaisnt the rules. Maybe im wrong.

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)!

Hackneydemon, to be honest you sound a tad bitter! You certainly dont sound as if your not bothered about him. Im glad it seems like hes staying, a massive bonus for our promotion push
31/01/2007 14:13:00
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.
