Bale interests McLeish

Bale interests McLeish

Birmingham boss Alex McLeish has admitted that he is keeping an eye on Tottenham`s Gareth Bale.

McLeish has been busy during close season building up a new look Birmingham side that can compete in the Premier League next season.

And after promising that the buying had not finished yet, it may be that the Blues boss would be interested in trying to tempted Spurs to part with the player.

Bales' time in North London has been plagued by injuries and a lack of consistency but should Spurs be ready to do business, McLeish would be at the front of the queue.

'Gareth Bale is another name we'd have to consider if he was available,' McLeish said.

I think Spurs would certainly consider a loan option as a preference, but would probably want around 7m for a sale, would he be worth a punt in your opinion at around that price or would one or two experienced heads be better?

McLeish would certainly want him. His Birmingham defence ios looking like a colander just now. Whether Gareth would do the job for them, who knows. Bale has to start dellivering on his promise soon, doesn't he?

I'd love to see him loaned out to a side where he'll play week in week out, it can only be good for his game. How good he really is still remains to be seen imo, as I don't feel he's lived up to the hype at all well, but he's had some injuries and a resurgent Assou-Ekotto to deal with. Maybe he'll shine with some regular games. I hope so.

Cant see Brum spending 7m on one a player who is going to be at best a gamble when that money would be you a couple of experienced defenders.

Bale went through a long spell whereby Spurs never won if he played a Premier League fixture - we loved it!

We don't need a couple of defenders we've already brought all of our defenders already. Roger Johnson, Martin Taylor, Liam Ridgewell, Scott Dann and Giovanny Espinoza that's plenty for the centre back positions. Right back is fullfilled with Parnaby, Carr and Wilson, Left Back needs to be looked at and we've already spent £9m on one player. Just shows that some people don't have a clue.
