Gareth Bale has been named in the Wales squad for next week's friendly against the Republic of Ireland in Cardiff.

The Tottenham winger is currently the subject of intense speculation surrounding a possible big-money move to Spanish giants Real Madrid, and has also been battling to overcome a niggling injury.

Wales manager Chris Coleman's 23-man squad also includes Cardiff striker Craig Bellamy and Wolves goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey.

Hennessey missed the majority of last season after twice suffering cruciate knee ligament injuries.
