Ex-Spurs captain Mabbutt confident Bale will stay

Former Tottenham captain Gary Mabbutt believes Gareth Bale will stay.

Long-term girlfriend Emma Rhys-Jones gave birth to a baby girl in October and it is believed Bale is happy to delay a move to provide his family with some stability.

Mabbutt told the Daily Star Sunday: "Why are people talking about Bale going abroad?

"He's playing the football of his life, he's got a very close family.

"His family travel to see him play every week.

"And he's on a very good four-year contract he signed at the start of the season. Hopefully we can get in the Champions League - what more could he want?"
