Gareth Bale is expected to complete his move to Tottenham Hotspur this weekend after closing a deal with the premier league side.

Bale completed a medical in Madrid on Thursday and was spotted on Spurs training ground on Friday afternoon.

The Wales captain travelled to London Luton Airport accompanied on a private flight by Real Madrid team-mate Sergio Reguilon, who is set to join Spurs on a five-year deal for a fee that could rise to £32m after also completing a medical on Thursday.

Tottenham have agreed to pay about £20m in wages and loan fees for a year.

Real Madrid have agreed to let him leave on loan in order to get his £500,000-a-week wages off their books and Tottenham have made all the running to sign him this week.

Apart from Zinedine Zidane, Bale has had a difficult relationship with the Spanish media and Real fans, and he is looking forward to making a fresh start back at Spurs.

The Wales captain is reportedly eager to return to his former club Tottenham where he will be loved and respected.
