Barnett insists no decision made over Spurs future for Bale

The agent of Gareth Bale says the Tottenham loanee hasn't decided where he will play next season.

Bale this week prompted fresh speculation over his future by telling reporters he still intends to return to Real Madrid in the summer, seemingly ruling out being at Spurs next season.

"The main reason I came to Spurs this year was to play football first and foremost," he said.

"Going into the Euros I wanted to be match-fit. The original plan was to do a season at Spurs and after the Euros still have a year left at Real Madrid.

"My plan is to go back, that's as far I have planned."

Bale's agent Jonathan Barnett on Friday insisted to ESPN that it was "too early" for talk over his client's future, opening the door for an extension to Bale's Spurs stay.

Barnett added that Bale's earlier comments were "taken completely out of context", before telling BBC Sport Wales: "There's no timescale [on a decision]. He is just concentrating on now."
