King says fully fit Bale can make difference at Tottenham

Tottenham captain Ledley King says a fully fit Gareth Bale will make a huge difference next season.

Bale insists he'll come back better than ever next term and King underlined that there was no surprise within the camp at his displays last season.

"He just carried on where he left off the season before," he told the Spurs website. "But what he's added is a goal threat, he's so dangerous in those attacking areas now.

"Earlier in his career he moved between left-back and left midfield but you always knew with his left foot that he could create chances and score goals.

"Now he's looking like he can score goals every week, as well as make goals.

"He's a big player for this team now and for the future.

"I'm delighted for him. He's such a good lad as well. To win the PFA award as well, that's such a special achievement, especially at his age. It shows you how well he's done."
