Gareth Bale is “close” to sealing a sensational move back to Tottenham, the player’s agent Jonathan Barnett said on Wednesday, seven years after joining the Spanish giants from Spurs for a world record fee. The Wales international has been frozen out by Real manager Zinedine Zidane and said earlier this month he was open to returning to the Premier League. Bale twice won Premier League Players’ Player of the Year during his first spell at Tottenham, which saw him score 56 goals in 203 appearances and lure Madrid into paying a then world-record £85 million ($132 million, 100 million euros) for his services. When asked about Tottenham’s move for Bale, Barnett told AFP: “It’s close but not done.” He added: “It’s a complicated deal.” Bale has two years left on a contract that pays him around 30 million euros a year at Real Madrid.Advertisement Madrid are pushing for a permanent transfer, while Spurs would prefer a loan move that involves the Spanish champions covering a portion of the 31-year-old’s wages. According to reports in England, Tottenham are set to pay £13 million of Bale’s salary for a year-long loan.

Press Association Southampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse has been sidelined for 10 weeks with a fractured foot. However, scans have shown the midfielder has a fracture in his foot which will sideline him for the next 10 weeks, meaning he will be missing for Saints and the England Under-21s in the upcoming European Championship play-off with Croatia. “We’re very disappointed about that, but that’s football and that can happen,” Koeman said. “It’s unlucky but okay. “The boy has to keep going and it’s difficult because he had a great start to the season, but it’s part of the football and he will come back.” Tuesday’s 2-1 win at Arsenal in the Capital One Cup was the first Saints match the 19-year-old academy graduate has missed this season. Ward-Prowse was taken off on a stretcher 69 minutes into Saturday’s win at Swansea, although manager Ronald Koeman was hopeful he would be fit for the return to Barclays Premier League action against QPR.
