Tottenham coach Tim Sherwood is "one million per cent" confident that Gareth Bale will remain at White Hart Lane. The Wales international saw his performances in 2012/13 land him in the PFA Player of the Year award, with a number of talismanic displays taking Spurs agonisingly close to a top-four finish and Champions League football. Unsurprisingly, Bale's exploits have drawn admiring glances from afar - with Real Madrid reported to be leading a £60million hunt for his signature. Spurs maintain that the 23-year-old is not for sale, and Sherwood is convinced that Bale is happy to remain with his current employers for the foreseeable future. He told the Daily Star Sunday: "Gareth's fantastically happy at Tottenham. "I see him around the training ground every day. He's got a good relationship with the manager and loves his team-mates. They show him the respect that he deserves and he gives it back to them. "I don't see him banging the door down trying to get a move. I believe one million per cent he will stay. "There will be a lot of clubs wanting to take Gareth but he's 23 and has good advisors. "There's a time for him to go overseas or to another Premier League club but I think he needs to stay here."
