Redknapp denies £10m bid for Bassong

Words by Kevin Doocey on .

Harry - Interested in Bassong but has not bid

Just as it seems we’d be getting good money for our Frenchman Sebastien Bassong, Harry Redknapp has denied the rumours that he’s bid £10m for the centre back. Speaking today, Redknapp confirmed that Sebastien is a player he’d interested in and will probably bid at some stage for the 23 year-old. Reports were rife today from Sky Sports that an initial bid has been rejected but Harry said he knows nothing about the bid, although he said that he didn’t ‘think’ the chairman, Daniel Levy had submitted the bid without his consent.

Redknapp said :

‘It is not true. Not since I have been here today,’

‘He is a player that I was interested in. I like Bassong, he is a young player with a good future and a good central defender.

Yet another twist in the tale, we’ll be reporting on this in further detail once we get, the real details from this story. Someone’s lying, is it an untrustworthy Newcastle United board or a disliked Harry Redknapp, although Newcastle never released a statement saying that had rejected a bid or indeed received one.

Comments welcome 🙂

‘I don’t think we have made an offer as far as I know. I am sure the chairman has not made an offer.’

I'm so sure we'll be bought at all. This is coming from an Australian fan who is DESPERATE for the Toon to be taken over. If it's DIC who are supposedly about to buy, £100m would be pocket change to their 28$ bn fortune! p.s - Great site Doocey, I will return :) Cheerio

Thanks Alan, Nice to Toon fans in AUS. I think most fans are desperate for a resolution and more importantly , new owners!

Re ShEaReAr : I'm not sure Redknapp will conjure up £15m either!
