Gareth Bale was still waiting to officially complete his return to Tottenham from Real Madrid last night.

The Wales international was pictured (above) arriving at Tottenham's training ground in the afternoon after flying into London to seal a season-long loan return to the club he left in 2013. But Spurs fans were still waiting for confirmation of the signing.

The club have been in discussions over the last few days to sign 31-year-old Bale, seven years after he left, and it appears all financial hurdles have been overcome.

Boss Jose Mourinho has refused to answer questions about the move.

Madrid are understood to be paying a large chunk of Bale's sizeable salary.

Spurs are also on the verge of signing Bale's Madrid team-mate Sergio Reguilon on a permanent transfer.
