Tottenham defender Joe Rodon says there is “no chance” Gareth Bale is planning to retire after the Euros.

There has been speculation that Bale, who is due to head back to Real Madrid following the end of his loan deal with Spurs, could hang up his boots this summer.

But about that possibility, Bale’s Wales team-mate Rodon, said: “No chance!

“It’s all on Gareth and I’ve got nothing to do with that, but none of us at Wales want him anywhere near retirement and we want him for as long as possible.”

Speaking about his time spent with Bale at Spurs, Rodon added: “He’s been brilliant with me since the first day I walked in through the doors at Tottenham.

“He’s just a big kid! He’s brilliant to have around the dressing room, and obviously, everyone knows what he does on the football pitch.

“Off it, he’s just brilliant to have around and he’s a great character.”
