Tottenham, who have forked out £12million in wages and loan fees to secure the deal, simply Tweeted: "Bale. Is. Back. Welcome home Gareth Bale."

The Champions League winner will take the No 9 shirt.

Left-back Sergio Reguilon was also unveiled on Saturday evening as the club completed a double deal with Los Blancos.

"It's such a special club to me, it's where I made my name. What an amazing club and amazing fans - it's incredible to be back.

"Hopefully I can get underway, help the team and hopefully win trophies.

"I always thought when I did leave that one day I would love to come back.

"The opportunity now has arisen and I feel like it's a good fit, it's a good time for me.

"I'm hungry, I'm motivated, I want to do well for the team and can't wait to get started."

Welshman Bale left Spurs to join Real Madrid in a then-world record 85m move in 2013.

He scored 105 goals and made 68 assists for the Spanish giants in just 251 games.

But he's back for his second spell in North London after being frozen out of Madrid's squad.

Bale posed for selfies with fans and smiled for the cameras as he arrived at Luton Airport on Friday.

The 31-year-old completed his medical in Spain after saying goodbye to his Madrid team-mates.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy made a rare appearance at the club's training ground on Friday as they looked to finalise the deal.

Real Madrid have been keen to get the Welshman's huge £650,000-per-week wages off the book.

It is understood that Spurs will pay 50 per cent - with Real covering the other half.

Bale's incredible wage packet will see him pocket more £125,000 than captain Harry Kane.

Mourinho has hinted Bale could be the final piece of the puzzle that needs at Tottenham.

When asked about the move earlier this month, he said: "A squad is a puzzle and when a new signing completes the puzzle it's a great feeling for the team."

But his arrival in North London could see Mourinho offload a handful of other stars.
