Bale has been his clubâ€™s most menacing attacker this season but he believes Holtby, who can play in a number of midfield roles, could become similarly influential.
â€śIâ€™m sure heâ€™s going to fit in very well,â€ť Bale said today. â€śHopefully, we can get him into the team quickly and get him doing well for us.
â€śHeâ€™s looked very sharp and he seems the type of player who could play well in a team like ours.
â€śAt 22, heâ€™s a younger than me, too, so there is a lot of potential there and letâ€™s hope he can fulfil that at Tottenham. He speaks fluent English, too, which helps, and it means he has settled in straight away with the rest of the squad.â€ť
