Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas refuses to give up on keeping Gareth Bale.

AVB insists the player's sale to Real Madrid is no done deal.

"Ideally we want to keep everyone to make us stronger - that is the ultimate objective of the club," he said.

"In the end, anything can happen. We are dragging ourselves into the last weeks of transfer activity and it can become very, very frantic."
