Andre Villas-Boas has given a blunt but straightforward answer in regards to the Tottenham future of Gareth Bale.

The Welsh star continues to be linked with a White Hart Lane exit with the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid constantly showing interest but Villas-Boas has made it clear he is going nowhere.

"Completely impossible," was his answer when asked if Bale would be allowed to leave White Hart Lane in January or anytime soon.

Bale has returned to fitness following a hamstring injury and will play for Spurs when they host Stoke City on Saturday.
