Betting suspended on Gareth Bale joining Tottenham Hotspur

Welsh attacker looks to be on his way out of Real Madrid

With a move away from Real Madrid creeping ever closer, betting has been suspended on a return to former club Tottenham Hotspur for Gareth Bale, according to our traders.

Before the market was suspended, the odds were as short as 1/4 on the 31-year-old swapping Madrid for North London.

Jose Mourinho is looking for reinforcements for his Spurs side after a poor start to the season, losing 1-0 to Everton on the opening day. The Lilywhites are 9/2 to finish in the top four this campaign.

Coral’s John Hill said: “It now looks like Gareth Bale is set to return to the Premier League to join Spurs, so we have pulled the plug on our betting.”

“Spurs and Manchester United have been at the top of the betting to secure Bale throughout the summer but it is the North London club who appear to have won the race to bring back the Welshman.”
