Gareth Bale admitted he will have to consider his future if Tottenham miss out on a place in the Champions League.

Spurs have dropped out of the Premier League top four on the back of a miserable run of results.

Their form has dipped since Harry Redknapp was linked with the England job and if the manager leaves, Welsh winger bale could follow him out the door.

'I had a taste of it last season and I enjoyed it thoroughly,' said Bale. 'I think everybody always wants to test themselves against the best players in the world.

'We have to wait and see what happens. Obviously if we don't (qualify for Champions League) we'll have to sit down and discuss and see what's best for myself.'

Bale played down reports linking him with Barcelona, adding on Football Focus: 'Obviously it's flattering but at the end of the day I'm still a Tottenham player and I need to keep performing week in week out for not just myself but for the team.'

Spurs host relegation-threatened Blackburn on Sunday.
