Gareth Bale: Leaked image shows star will be playing golf with Daniel Levy on Friday

Bale is set to play golf in London on Friday

Gareth Bale is on the verge of re-joining Tottenham. 

The Welshman spent six seasons in north London between 2007 and 2013, when he established himself as one of the best players in Europe. 

A seven-year spell followed at Real Madrid, where he won 13 major trophies, including two La Liga titles, the Copa del Rey and four Champions Leagues. 

But despite his incredible trophy haul - and the fact he played a significant part in almost all of those triumphs - Bale leaves Spain on a sour note. 

Until agreeing a move to Spurs, he was in a standoff with the club.

Zinedine Zidane no longer wanted him in the team, but the forward appeared more than happy to stay and drain the finances with his £600,000-a-week wage. 

Now though, he's on his way back to the Premier League.

It's expected Bale will complete a medical on Friday and sign on-loan, but it seems he also has another important bit of business to take care of. 

Playing golf with Daniel Levy. A leaked image appears to show the pair - along with Tottenham's chief scout Steve Hitchin - have a tee time booked at Hadley Wood Golf Club.

Because of course Bale needs to check out the golf scene in London before committing his future. 

The image of the trio's apparent golf trip sent fans into a frenzy on social media. One supporter said: "He's going to be announced while playing golf isn't he."

Another tweeted: "You could not write this," while a third predicted: "We're going to get a Gareth Bale playing golf compilation as an announcement tweet." 

Bale famously loves a round of golf

While many were loving the idea, a later Twitter post from Hadley Wood Golf Club seemed to suggest the leaked image was a hoax.

"Never had so many Friday afternoon tee time requests. #WeWish #BaleBack," they tweeted.
