Newcastle United have rejected a bid from Tottenham Hotspur for Sebastien Bassong.

Harry Redknapp is keen to strengthen his defence following injuries to Michael Dawson, Ledley King and Jonathan Woodgate – but the Championship club have turned down a £10million approach from the White Hart Lane outfit.

Arsenal are also said to be interested in the former French Under 21 international, but are put off by the Magpies £15million valuation.

It remains to be seen if Harry Redknapp will improve his offer.

  1. 15m is silly money. Getting towards the deadline Ashley will be desperate for money and might just grab a lower bid.
