Wales willing to see Tottenham star Bale play for Team GB

The FA of Wales are happy for Tottenham star Gareth Bale and Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey to play for Great Britain in the London Olympics.

Four Wales stars are set to go for gold this summer, with Swansea left-back Neil Taylor also being selected alongside Spurs' Bale and Arsenal's Ramsey and Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs.

An FA of Wales spokesman insists that participation in the Games was "a matter for the players concerned."

He told the Sunday Mirror: "There won't be any sanction or action taken against them. They won't find that it prejudices their involvement with Wales in the future.

"As an organisation, we have made our position clear in the past and it has not changed.

"But if someone is asked and chooses to play, that is their personal choice."
