Sebastien Bassong is reported to be keen to leave Newcastle United in order to join Tottenham Hotspur.

The former French Under-21 defender is, according to Sky Sports, eager to work under Harry Redknapp at White Hart Lane.

Press reports over the weekend claimed that Spurs had made a £10million bid for Bassong – something which Redknapp later denied, but did admit his interest in the player.

Bassong only joined the Magpies last season for around £500,000, but with Spurs desperate for cover in the heart of their defence due to injuries to  Ledley King, Jonathan Woodgate and Michael Dawson – he could be set to make an offer for the 23-year-old.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Please explain – Newcastle pay £500,000 for him less than a year ago, he plays a strong part in getting the club relegated, and now, he’s suddenly worth £10 million – how does that work?
    How can any player be worth that much more.

  2. He was a bargin when picked up, stats show him as being one of the top centre backs last year, i am with ashes here though seems a huge jump in price considering he was still in a team that got relegated, do not think will get this kind of money for him ans know we havent offered that kind of money

  3. Thank money bags Man City. Since they’ve been splashing out silly money on all and sundry everyone price has gone up. Even i’m worth 5M and i’m 58 years old. LOL
