Gylfi Sigurdsson says he and his Tottenham team-mates have so far done a good job of blocking out the Gareth Bale transfer rumours.

The Iceland international also praised the club for its handling of the situation.

The 23-year-old said the players had not been affected by the constant reports that Bale is joining Real Madrid, nor the stream of rumours about who might be arriving at White Hart Lane to replace the Welsh star.

He said: “I think we’ve dealt with [the Bale situation] quite well.

“The club has dealt with it really well as well. Us as players, we can’t really do anything. We just keep training. We don’t really think about who is coming in or who is leaving.”
