Gareth Bale will not require surgery on is niggling back injury.

According to the Evening Standard, the 21-year-old saw a chiropractor on Tuesday and was advised to rest - allaying fears that he would have to go under the knife.

The issue forced the Tottenham winger to be substituted after just 11 minutes against Newcastle last weekend and has caused him problems for some time.

However, despite not requiring surgery, the Spurs star is expected to be out of action for around two weeks - although no definite date has been given as to when he will return to the fold at White Hart Lane. reports, however, that he will certainly miss Tottenham's FA Cup tie against Fulham at the weekend as well as when Spurs travel to Blackburn and the week following when they host Bolton.

Earlier this week, Harry Redknapp admitted his concern at the fitness of the Welshman and hoped a resolution to his back troubles would soon be reached.

“We hope he doesn't need surgery. I just hope it's not too bad again," said the Tottenham boss.

“It's been dragging on for weeks now and we need to sort him out.

"You don't know how long it will be with back injures. He maybe needs a chiropractor or osteopath, someone like that.

"It's a shame because we need him playing, for sure. There isn't a better left-sided player anywhere than Gareth Bale at the moment."
