    According to the Daily Mirror Gareth Bale may be persuaded to stay in London one more year:

    Spurs chairman Daniel Levy believes he can persuade the Welsh international to stay if the club qualify for the Champions League and will offer an improved contract as an extra incentive.

    And his plea for Bale to remain at White Hart Lane will be helped further by the fact that those closest to the 23-year-old star are also encouraging him to stay.

    Sources close to Bale believe those strong family ties mean he remains open to the prospect of staying at Spurs, if they finish in the top four.

    Tottenham is currently in a great position to get a top-four spot this season.

    If the statements in the article ring true, then entrance into the Champions League next season could see them retain their top star for at least one more season.
