Tottenham have told Barcelona to forget about trying for winger Gareth Bale.

Barca president Sandro Rosell claimed this week that they would love to sign Bale, 22, for a £35million fee.

But Tottenham will refuse to listen to any offers for their winger - sticking to their stance to keep Luka Modric out of Chelsea's clutches.

Assistant boss Joe Jordan said: "That was the stance with Luka. He's still here."
