Bassong moves to Norwich

Tottenham have sold Sebastien Bassong to Norwich, with the defender signing a three-year contract with the Carrow Road club.

The Cameroon international has found opportunities at White Hart Lane limited, and spent a loan spell with Wolves last term.

With new coach Andre Villas-Boas eager to shake-up his squad, Bassong has emerged as surplus to requirements in north London.

Chris Hughton has worked with Bassong previously, and admitted that he is glad to have signed the defender for the Canaries.

“S├ębastien is a player that I have known well since my time at Newcastle and I’m delighted to have brought in someone with the Premier League experience he has got,” Hughton told the Norwich official website.

“He will give us power and pace at the back and again add to the competition in the squad.”

Bassong feels that it will be a new chapter in his career and is glad to have moved clubs to get regular first-team football.

“I’ve been officially transferred to Norwich today. 3 years deal. another chapter in my football life,” the African battler told his Twitter followers.

“I wish all the best to my old team mates at Spurs. I’ve had great time with them.”
