The Welsh wonderkid had also been linked with a move to both Manchester United and Arsenal, but Spurs seem to have beaten them to it. The 17-year-old left-back turned down a £10 million move to White Hart Lane in the January transfer window, but was widely tipped to move on in the summer.
Pies is looking forward to seeing Bale playing in the Premier League. He certainly seems to have the ability to succeed at a higher level. It is also excellent news for Spurs fans as they snap up one of the brightest prospects in British football. Has he picked the right club?
