Spuds up Bassong ante

Spuds up Bassong ante

With pre-season friendlies slowly beginning to tick past, it seems Spurs have made the first serious move to take Seb Bassong from Tyneside. A number of papers are reporting bids ranging from £5m to £7m as the North London club aim to get some quality cover in for the ever injury prone Ledley King and Jonathan Woodgate.

However The Times is saying that we are holding out for a 2000% profit on the player, with £10m the anticipated asking price.

All of this however is contingent with the club asking the bidding parties whether they would want Bassong at the club should they buy.

Do you barcodes really think he is worth 10 mil when your club is being touted for sale at only 100 mil and nobody will pay that? rumour has it that your debt is so great the club is almost worthless. I would hate to see you do a Leeds or Charlton. Hurry back to the prem.

I think he fits the bill for the type of player we need to play alongside woodgate or one of the other quality but lacking pace CBs we have already, I would imagine he would jump at the chance of playing Prem football again and you guys will have to get things sorted on and off the pitch very quickly. Perhaps if Harry identifies Bassong as his man, we need to be agressive and get the deal done quickly.

Hopefully it will be at the upper end of that price bracket and that AS when appointed will have enough time to bring in a defensive replacement or two, hopefully the two Wednesday lads, Beevers and Spurr

Probably worth about what you've offered tbf. Problem is that Ronaldo on his own is worth our club, players and property. The out of kilter transfer market is to blame.
