WILL SPURS SIGN BALE PERMANENTLY

The future of Gareth Bale was in serious doubt until this weekend when he finally announced his second coming at Tottenham Hotspur. The Welsh international player had been a shadow of himself in his second spell at Tottenham Hotspur until this weekend when he announced himself with two goals and one assist during the 4-0 thumping of Burnley at home on Sunday. Gareth Bale re-signed for Tottenham Hotspur on loan from Real Madrid last year, seven years after he had left the club for the same Spanish La Liga outfit for a then world-record fee of £85.3m. Since his return to Spurs, manager Jose Mourinho has not played him regularly but that could change now after his heroics at the weekend. His performance against the Clarets would have gone a long way to convince the Spurs heirarchy about signing the Welshman on a permanent deal at the end of his loan spell this summer. He had scored one goal in the league and was looking largely unfit due to a lack of playing time until the last one week.
