Bassong almost done
As revealed by The Shelf at the end of June, Spurs have finally followed up their interest in Bassong from Newcastle and, according to Sky, he has passed a medical and a fee has been agreed with "The World's Best Club". How "The World's Best Fan's" are likely to see this departure is unknown.
I hope it won't be too hard to complete personal terms as Bassong is currently on a reported £5000 a week. Either he is stupid or has the world's worst agent to be paid such a low amount.
Bassong comes from the Clairefontaine academy along with the likes of Anelka, Gallas, Henry and Louis Saha so let's hope he was sick for the "Stroppy, spoilt child" part of their training.
Seriously, Newcastle fans rate him highly and have said he didn't do much wrong considering the rest of his team mates were imploding around and will provide good cover for King and Woodgate. I doubt Dawson will be going anywhere at the minute as it is possible Dawson and Bassong will be the starting pairing against Liverpool but if Bassong establishes himself Dawson could well be going in the future.
