Gareth Bale is on the verge of re-joining Tottenham and the Spanish press couldn't be more happier with the exit of Real Madrid's 'villain'.

The Wales international, 31, agreed a season-long loan earlier this week, with Madrid subsidising at least half of his £500,000 per-week wages.

And he received a hero's welcome from jubilant supporters when he arrived at the club's training ground on Friday, seven years after leaving to join Real Madrid in a then world-record £86million transfer.

The front page of Spanish publication AS displayed one such image of jubilation with a fan taking a picture with the Welshman in his car, and with relief in Madrid that he has been moved on for the next season at least captioned it with the phrase: 'from villain to hero'.

AS also makes reference to the 'superstar' welcome Bale received upon his arrival in London, and claim that Spurs are expected to present the player on Saturday.

However, they also support Marca's claim that he will have to wait for his second Tottenham debut because he is still suffering from a knee injury he picked up on international duty with Wales earlier this month.

Above the main headline, the publication adds: 'Bale arrives at Mourinho's Tottenham... and is injured for a month!'

Bale, who was routinely criticised over his questionable fitness record in Madrid, travelled to London on Friday to undergo his medical and Tottenham will be hoping his knee problem will not keep him sidelined for too long.

His Madrid team-mate Sergio Reguilon is also set to finalise his move to Spurs. The club have agreed a £27.5 m deal with a further £4.5 m due in add-ons.

He has signed a five-year deal, with Spurs agreeing to Madrid's demand for a £36.5m buyback clause — a demand Manchester United refused in their pursuit of the player — which can be activated in the next two years.

As revealed by Sportsmail, the deal for Bale will cost Spurs £13m in wages and does not include an option or obligation to buy him. However, they will have an option to extend the loan for a second year.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is keen to retain an option to bring Bale back to the Bernabeu next summer, despite the player's fall-out with manager Zinedine Zidane.

Perez is wary of Bale rediscovering his best form in England so has left the door open for him to return next season.

Spurs' deals for Bale and Reguilon however were not completed in time for the pair to be involved in Sunday's trip to Southampton.
