Football’s English Premier League Tottenham have signed a comprehensive loan deal for the rest of the season with Welsh striker Gareth Bale, the club announced.

Bale came to Tottenham at the age of 17 from Southampton in 2007 and left Spurs in 2013 for the Spanish giant Real Madrid for the then world record sum of £ 85 million.

In Real, Bale scored over 100 goals and won the Champions League four times and the Spanish League twice.

However, Bale, who earns £ 600,000 a week, recently ran into difficulties with Real due to injuries and low-key game performances.

Now, at the age of 31, he is returning to London.

- For all Spurs fans, after seven years I have come back !, Bale summed up a Twitter message.
