Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale reveals that he has settled quickly into life in Spain.

Gareth Bale has revealed that he has settled quickly into his new life at Real Madrid.

The 22-year-old Welshman has enjoyed a successful first season for Los Blancos, scoring 19 goals in 32 games following a reported £85m move from Tottenham Hotspur.

While other British players have been known to struggle abroad, Bale insists that his style of football is suited to La Liga.

"I don't feel I've changed too much," Bale told bwin. "I think there is more emphasis on possession here in Spain than in the Premier League, but my style hasn't changed greatly and I feel comfortable playing here."

Madrid return to action on Tuesday night when they will take a 3-0 first-leg lead away to Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League quarter-finals.
