Future's bright for Bale

Gareth Bale has spoken of his delight after signing a new four-year contract that will keep him at the club until 2014.

One of the stars of the second half of the season, Gareth has lit up the Lane with a series of barnstorming performances down the left flank.

In doing so, he's picked up a host of personal awards and ultimately helped the team qualify for the Champions League for the first time.

And Gareth, 20, was quick to point out that his new deal was signed and sealed before fourth place was secured by our 1-0 win at City on Wednesday night.

"It was actually agreed a while ago and I signed last week," said Gareth.

"The club is going in the right direction and I'm delighted to be here.

"It's been great to get back into the side and do well and to top that off by qualifying for the Champions League is fantastic. It's an unbelievable achievement for everyone at the club.

"The lads are all looking forward to playing Champions League football. We can't wait for next season."

The season's not quite over though - we could yet finish third if we manage to beat Burnley on Sunday and Fulham topple Arsenal at the Emirates.

"We'll give our all at Burnley, try to win and you never know," he smiled. "It's about one final push and we'll see what happens."
