An intriguing clause in Gareth Bale's contract at Tottenham has emerged after his arrival.
The Wales international was officially confirmed on Saturday after agreeing to a season-long loan from Real Madrid.

But there could be cause for more glee with a clause meaning he could stay even longer than the one season.
According to Football London, Tottenham will have the option to extend the loan by another year.
However, that is only if the move is a success and all parties agree to it – with all keen on such a deal to go through.
