Tottenham confirm new signing will return to action only after October international break



Gareth Bale to make second Tottenham debut in October

As reported by, Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that new signing Gareth Bale is carrying a knee injury and will be match fit only after the October international break.

Tottenham confirmed Bale’s return to the club after a seven-year gap on Saturday. The 31-year-old Welshman has rejoined on a season-long loan from Real Madrid. The deal can be extended for another year, depending on how the winger fares on his return to North London.

The club has confirmed that Bale is currently carrying a knee injury, that he picked up on international duty with Wales. And given the short pre-season he has had, he will be match-fit only after the international break in October. (h/t

“Gareth sustained a knee injury whilst playing for Wales on international duty earlier this month and this together with La Liga’s later start compared to the Premier League means he has had a limited pre-season. We currently anticipate that he will be match fit after October’s international break.”

This would mean that Bale will miss out for Tottenham against Leyton Orient (Carabao Cup), Shkendija (Europa League), Newcastle United and Manchester United. He could return in time for the London Derby against West Ham on October 17.
