RYAN GIGGS has hailed Gareth Bale's season-long loan move from Real Madrid to Tottenham as 'mouth-watering'.
Bale's Wales boss is delighted his talisman will get the chance to play regular first-team football when he is fit following a knee injury next month.
Without the Welshman, Spurs won 5-2 at Southampton thanks to Son Heung-Min and Harry Kane and Giggs believes Jose Mourinho's side will be box-office in attack.
Giggs said: "It looks mouthwatering – Kane, Son and Bale. They have so many good players at Tottenham. I am really looking forward to seeing how he does.
"It’s good to have him back in the Premier League. We want to see the best players in the world in the Premier League and it will be interesting to see how he does."
While Bale was frozen out under Zinedine Zidane at Real, Giggs has continued to pick the 31-year-old at international level.

Bale was captain for the Nations League wins over Finland and Bulgaria earlier this month but was rusty due a lack of match fitness.
The forward picked up a knee problem after being on the end of a robust challenge in the second half of the 1-0 victory over the Bulgarians in Cardiff.
Bale could be a doubt for Wales’ friendly against England on October 8 followed by a Nations League double-header away to the Republic of Ireland and Bulgaria as his availability remains uncertain as he regains his fitness.
But Giggs, when asked if he was relieved Bale will now play more as Euro 2020 approaches next summer, the Manchester United legend replied: "Yes but not as many trips to Madrid anymore. It will be great. He has Ben Davies there as a team-mate as well.

"It’s a huge boost when you see someone like that walk through the door.
"They got off to a disappointing start to the season, but to see him fit and firing, he will score goals, he’ll make assists, he’ll be a massive lift.
"I’m sure the Tottenham fans cannot wait to see him."
