Gareth Bale has sent a message to Arsenal following his move back to Tottenham.
Wales international Bale completed a stunning move back to north London earlier this month from Spanish giants Real Madrid.
The 31-year-old is currently on a season-long from the La Liga champions, who were willing to sell the former Southampton man earlier this year.
Bale is champing at the bit to get back on the pitch for Spurs and already has an eye on the North London Derby, a fixture he flourished in during his first stint with the club.
"It's always good to score in the North London Derby," Bale told Spurs TV. "And it's always better to be on the winning side.
"But yeah, I think they're special games. It's the main derby here for us. It's always great to get one over the enemy."
Bale endured a difficult 18 months at the Bernabeu following Zinedine Zidane's reappointment as manager last March.
The winger, however, is no longer thinking about his Spanish sorrow and is focused solely on helping Tottenham have a successful season.

"I am happy to be back and love this club with all my heart. I've had great memories here and l feel very happy and confident. My energy levels have gone up," Bale told Sky Sports. "It was time for a change. I wanted to change for a little while but it hadn't materialised.
'This club means so much to me, it gave me my opportunities, and I felt it was a good time to come back. I feel the club is still going in a great direction and I wanted to be part of that."
He added: "I just want to enjoy my football. In Madrid, it was a bit flat for a while, which l think everyone could see. When you are not happy, it's difficult to play at your highest level.
"I am very quiet, I try to keep myself as normal as l can and away from the cameras and media. Maybe that is what they didn't like over there."
Bale has yet to feature for Tottenham due to a minor knee injury, which is expected to keep him on the sidelines until after the October international break.
