Sebastien Bassong is reported to have already undergone a medical with Tottenham Hotspur.
The Newcastle United defender had previously stated his intention to work under Harry Redknapp at White Hart Lane, ahead of the likes of Manchester City, Everton and Arsenal.
Bassong only joined the Magpies last summer from Metz in a Â£500,000 deal, but is now valued at around Â£8-Â£10million.
Redknapp is keen to strengthen his options in the heart of the Spurs defence, following injuries toÂ Ledley King, Jonathan Woodgate and Michael Dawson.
Would you be happy with the arrival of Bassong?
