‘Ridiculous’: Peter Crouch shares what he has heard about reported Tottenham target

Burnley striker Peter Crouch has revealed that he fancies a move from Tottenham Hotspur to bring back the club’s old talisman.

Crouch played at White Hart Lane for a couple of seasons as the club battled for a place in the Champions League and he played a major part in that during the reign of Harry Redknapp.

Back in that era, the Englishman was teammates with Gareth Bale, who starred for Spurs before securing a big-money move to Real Madrid in the summer of 2013.

It is no secret that Bale’s career at the Santiago Bernabeu appears to be coming to an end and that sets up a great opportunity for his former club to snap him up for a cheaper price that they would have last summer.

Based on a report by The Sun, Spurs are interested in luring the Welshman away from Real Madrid in what could be a fine reunion with the star forward.

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!”
