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.
