Gareth Bale is 5/6 to leave White Hart Lane this summer following his man-of-the-match display against Newcastle on Saturday.

Bale scored twice to give Spurs a 2-1 victory over Newcastle, a result which keeps them on course for a place in next season's Champions League - they remain fourth in the table.

The Welsh star is the same price to still be at the club come the first day of the 2013/14 campaign.

If Bale does go, Real Madrid are rated most likely to sign him - Sky Bet offer 6/5 about the Spanish giants signing him in the summer transfer window. Cash-rich French club Paris St Germain are 6/1 with Hill's, with Manchester United offered at 8/1 for his signature at Sky Bet.

William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly said: "His recent good form will do nothing to deter the advances of Europe's major clubs and what a frightening prospect for Spanish defenders of Bale and Ronaldo down each wing."

Tottenham are 10/11 to finish in the top four with Sky Bet and others, who find it hard to split them from neighbours Arsenal.

The Gunners, 1-0 winners at Sunderland, are offered at evens (general) for a top-four finish. Spurs currently hold a four-point lead over their bitter rivals.

Hill's also offer 4/7 about Frank Lampard breaking the all-time Chelsea goalscoring record following his latest strike in the 4-1 win over Wigan. He needs five more to break the record.

Having also scored for England in midweek, Lampard has come in from 15/8 to still be at Stamford Bridge at the start of next season to 8/15 over the course of the week.
