Bale says Dembele will replace Modric at Spurs

Gareth Bale says Mousa Dembele can fill Luka Modric's boots at Tottenham.

Spurs swooped for Dembele after selling Modric to Real Madrid.

Bale told the Guardian: "Everybody saw what Mousa can do at Fulham. He's a great signing, a great player, he's proved it at Fulham and can do even better at Tottenham. Dembélé playing in central midfield instead of Modric … I think he's capable of filling Luka's boots and more, to be honest."
