Crouch wrote in The Daily Mail: “Gareth Bale's position at Real Madrid continues to confuse me and the misuse of such a talented player is ridiculous.

“We share the same agent and, as far as I know, he is determined to stick it out in Spain. He is happy living there and wants to force his way back into the team, regardless of the speculation that continues to follow him.

“But if he is not going to be used regularly next season, I would love to see him return to Spurs. I saw reports earlier this week of him going back to the club on loan, with a £10million loan fee suggested.

“I know how Daniel Levy operates and that certainly wouldn't be the kind of deal he'd like to do!”
