Hong Kong: Spurs are in talks with Gareth Bale over a new contract, manager Andre Villas-Boas said Friday, in a bid to keep him away from the clutches of Real Madrid.

The star winger, 24, was reported earlier this week to have come to an agreement with Real and there were claims he had told the Londoners he wanted to leave.

"There was contact last year between the club (Spurs) and his agent. There are ongoing contacts between the club and his agent," said Villas-Boas.
