Bale planning to continue improvement after signing Tottenham deal

Gareth Bale says he is planning to continue developing his game at the top level after signing a four-year deal with Tottenham.

The 22-year old Welsh winger put pen to a new Spurs deal today and was looking forward to improving his game even further now he has committed to the North Londoners.

"I think I could have scored a lot more and that's one area I'm looking to improve more than anything. I think I can do that," he told the club's official website.

"I did quite well with my assists last season but I'd like to improve that as well.

"Last season I was getting double and treble-marked on the wing, so I was able to come inside and score a few goals in more central areas.

"Now it's a case of mixing it all up and putting my whole game together. I'm looking at my all-round game, trying new things and trying to be the best player I can be.

"I'm still young and still learning. This is the right place for me to keep progressing as a player. This is the perfect place to do that.

"We've got the potential to challenge right at the top of the Premier League. It's exciting times at the club and I'm enjoying it, I want to be a part of that. I don't see any reason to leave.

"I know where I need to improve and hopefully you'll see that next season."
