LIVE Transfer Talk: Tottenham have option to extend Bale loan from Real Madrid

Tottenham have a first refusal clause that will allow them to extend Gareth Bale's loan for another season. Transfer Talk is LIVE with the latest.
Nedum Onuoha says Gareth Bale's hat trick vs. Sheffield United proves he can still be elite. (1:39)

The January transfer window might seem like a distant memory, but that doesn't mean the rumour mill has shut down! Speculation over summer moves is heating up, so check out the latest gossip below, and see all official deals here.

TOP STORY: Spurs have option to keep Bale on loan

Tottenham may be able to extend Gareth Bale's loan from Real Madrid for another year this summer, reports the Daily Mail.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy made sure Spurs had a first refusal clause in the Wales international's loan when he joined last year, allowing the possibility for a return after his current deal comes to an end. However, the arrangement does require Bale to agree to rejoin the club again, something that may not have been likely a few weeks ago.

The report says Levy will present the opportunity of re-signing the 31-year-old winger to Tottenham's new manager when the club eventually replaces Jose Mourinho.

It looks unlikely Bale will play a part for Real Madrid next season, with the Spanish club needing to offload his wages from their books amid the financial crisis. Tottenham are reportedly paying £240,000-a-week of Bale's salary at Madrid and the same terms would be agreed if he stayed on.

A run of impressive performances, most recently a hat trick in a win against Sheffield United on Sunday, and game time under interim manager Ryan Mason may have convinced Bale to return to London again next year.

The move would cost Tottenham another £12 million in wages, but it would present a cheaper option than signing a direct replacement this summer.
