Tottenham Hotspur fans will be able to watch their star man who return to the club after seven years.

Jose Mourinho completed the loan deal of Gareth Bale from Real Madrid after the Welsh international has been frozen out of coach Zinedine Zidane squad at Real Madrid.

Despite winning the Champions League back to back with Real Madrid and scoring in the finals on several occasions, he doesn't seem to be favoured by the French man.

Although, Zidane has stated on several occasions that he's reason for omitting Bale out of match day team sheet was down to tactical reason.

Bale return to Spurs where he left in 2013 to join the Los Blancos.

Jose Mourinho have revealed that Gareth Bale will make his first appearance since returning to Tottenham when they face West Ham on Sunday.

"Of course he wants to play. He wanted to play since the day he arrived but wasn't possible," Mourinho told a media conference. "I'm not going to tell you if he's going to play or not. What I will tell you is that he's working very well. He's working the way he probably hasn't been able to do for some time.

"The planning of the recent sessions had a big focus on him. His condition is good. Does he play Sunday or Thursday, we haven't made a decision yet."

The Portuguese boss whose side are growing in confidence after their 5-1 thrashing of Manchester United last weekend said every player in his squad are important.

Jose Mourinho said: "Every player is a very important player but the Gareth situation is very special because of his history. We care about him as much as he does for Tottenham.

"It's a physical thing. He didn't have any pre-season and even in the period after the lockdown, he didn't participate in much with Real Madrid, then he plays a couple of matches with Wales, had an injury there.

"It's not just about coming and needing a week of work to be at a level. It's more global than that and we don't want him to be rushed, we want him to be comfortable, we want him to make the decision of 'yes, I'm ready to go'. It's more about that."

Jose Mourinho further stated that Bale who joined the club on a loan move while nursing an injury will be available for their Europa League clash.

Jose added: "He's working so well, just evolution in every data, in every aspect of his condition. He's there. Probably he plays Sunday, if he doesn't he will on Thursday [in the Europa League v LASK]. He's there. He's very, very close."
