CONFIRMED: Spurs announce the return of Gareth Bale to the club

Gareth Bale has secured a sensational return to Tottenham, joining on loan seven years after leaving for Real Madrid.

In a deal pushed by Daniel Levy and approved by manager Jose Mourinho, Bale will spend the season back with Spurs with the Spanish giants subsidizing a large portion of his wages.

The 31-year-old has won honors galore during his time at the Santiago Bernabeu but he has fallen way out of favor under Zinedine Zidane over the past couple of seasons.

The Wales international made over 200 appearances for Spurs between 2007 and 2013, scoring 55 goals with almost half of those coming in his final season.

Jersey number 9?

Changes to Spurs' official Twitter account today have had fans convinced they know Bale's new shirt number.

The social media page's bio changed to include the numbers '16:03:11:09' - Bale's first three shirt numbers during his first stint at Tottenham, followed by what many believe will now be his new number.
