Press Association The 24-year-old trained on his own at Wales’ Newport base on Monday afternoon but his fitness will not be risked as he recovers from a foot injury. Bale, who has not played for Spurs in nearly a month, has been widely linked with a world record transfer to Real Madrid. center_img Bale was understood to be concerned at doing further damage to his foot with the move potentially on the horizon, and a statement on the official FAW website said: “Gareth was keen to join up with the squad and Tottenham were more than happy for him to do so. “He trained alone and will not feature in the game on Wednesday.” Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas had said last weekend he did not expect Bale to be fit for the north London club’s Barclays Premier League opener against Crystal Palace on Sunday, but the winger travelled to south Wales to meet up with his international team-mates on Monday morning. Despite being unavailable to play the Republic of Ireland, Spurs are happy for Bale to remain in camp with Wales where he will continue to train and will be in the stands at Cardiff City Stadium on Wednesday evening. Bale is the third player that has been ruled out for Wales. Earlier, Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey and West Ham defender James Collins withdrew from the squad with ankle and knee injuries respectively.
