Andre Villas-Boas believes Gareth Bale deserves a new contract at Tottenham following his stunning season for the north Londoners.

The PFA player of the year has scored 20 Premier League goals to help Spurs’ push for Champions League qualification and is fast becoming one of the most sought-after talents in Europe.

Tottenham are understood to have offered Bale a new deal worth in the region of £130,000 a week in recent weeks.

And his manager insists he is “very calm” about the 23-year-old’s contract situation ahead of Tottenham’s trip to Stoke City on Sunday.

“I think for the season he has just had he deserves a new contract,” said Villas-Boas.

“Obviously, we will put to bed everything in terms of the speculation coming out, which we are very calm about, as I told you a couple of weeks ago.

“But it would be an excellent reward for what he has achieved this season.”
