Tottenham Hotspurs lead Sebastien Bassong chase

Bassong - In high demand as expected

News has broke today that Sebastien Bassong, Newcastle’s best player last season by far is on the verge of joining Tottenham. Well no really but apparently Spurs are leading the chase to sign the Cameroonian international. We expected high demand for this player and we would be surprised if Arsenal didn’t come in and make a suitable offer. Indeed we know Seb wants to leave but how much will he go for is another thing. Hopefully in the region of £8-10m if he does have to leave.

A source close to Seb said :

“We’re waiting to hear back from a couple of other clubs regarding Seb, but Tottenham are definitely keen,”

“It’s still early days, but we do expect things to be resolved quite quickly once teams report back for pre-season’

Our ‘team’ will report back for pre-season but then again Friday, tomorrow, is apparently D-Day for Alan Shearer and maybe Newcastle United football club. We’ll just have to see what happens, it’s all we can do.

Will be sorry to see this lad go but £12m wouldn't be a bad price to get for him :D

Good young player, but selling him is all down to the next owners. If sold for £15million are we getting a good deal? I'd say yeah now, but then again, I said Milner for £12million was a good deal, and look how he's progressed...

Agreed. There's more to come from Seb but £15m would be good money to get considering we're a Championship team. I've a guy feeling I'll be eating my words though :(

It's a tricky one. He's only had the one season with us (hasn't he?) and although he shone, he shone in our defence... could just be a blinding season for an average player in which case £10m plus is a very good deal. On the other hand if we get promoted we'd be looking to buy a premiership-class defender anyway (probably) so selling him now might help in the short term (more funds for players) but hurt us in the long run (better chance of promotion with him and no need to splash more cash if we are). Ultimately for me it comes down to the player, if he wants to go you have to let him or he won't put in the same effort, consciously or not.
