Gareth Bale has assured Tottenham fans he won't be affected by London's nightlife.

Bale, who struck on his home debut for Spurs against Arsenal, said: "I'm not one for going out that much. I'm not interested in nightclubs and that sort of thing, so I don't think you'll be seeing me out in the West End.

"I've bought myself an apartment neat the Spurs training ground. I'd rather watch music channels and football than go out."
