The 23-year-old Wales international signed a new four-year contract with Spurs this summer preventing speculation of a move overseas, but it is something he would consider in the future.

"I'd never be scared of it," he told The Guardian. "It's something I'd like to experience. It's in the future but if something did come up I would obviously look at it with interest."

Bale also gave his backing to new Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas, who replaced the popular Harry Redknapp this summer.

"He's very approachable," said Bale. "If there is a problem, or something we feel is not right, his door is open. He wants us to work that way: together, the players and staff, and if there is a problem we can always share our ideas with him and he will take it on board.

"For example, if we feel we are working too hard in training, if we say that to him, then he'll ease it off. He's still learning as well as a manager but he does all the coaching and everything himself, which is great."
