Tottenham wing-back Danny Rose is pleased teammate Gareth Bale has penned a new contract.

Bale staying, however, makes Rose's path to the first team all the more difficult.

He told the London Evening Standard: "It's brilliant for the fans and us (players) as well.

"For the last two or three seasons Gareth has been the main man and it is great he has signed (for) another four years."
