Gareth Bale’s representatives hope to meet Daniel Levy this week to impress on the Spurs chairman the players’ desire to secure a day off to visit Alton Towers.
The stand-off between the two parties has threatened to turn acrimonious, with the former Southampton star reported to be ‘saddened, and dismayed’ at the club’s refusal to acknowledge his desire to visit the theme park prior to his best friend’s children returning to school.
“His mate Mickey has only got until the end of August to get a couple of days off work to head up to Alton Towers,” said a representative for Bale.
“The deadline’s coming up, and Gareth feels he hasn’t been listened to by those in charge at White Hart Lane,” he continued.
A spokesman for Tottenham stated, “we know of Gareth’s interest, and of the the attractions available to him at Alton Towers, which is why we need to sit down and formally discuss his situation.”
Spurs are thought to be keen to try and coax the young Welshman back into training with a new deal thought to be in the region of £150,000.
However, with the additions of new rides, such as the Air rollercoaster, at the Staffordshire-based theme park, their prospects appear to be bleak.
