Tottenham’s headline-grabbing move to welcome back Gareth Bale from Real Madrid looks set to last just one season. The 31-year-old’s much vaunted return to the club has been underwhelming, with Bale having played just 161 minutes in the Premier League midway through the 12-month loan deal, partly due to injuries. The Times says a second season with Spurs is “not being considered at the moment”, and the next few months will prove crucial to his future.

The Molineux outfit had reportedly been keen to bolster their attack with the signings from Chelsea and Liverpool, but Nuno Espirito Santo has been told there is no money available for the deals.
