The France Under 21 international recently underwent a trial period with the Magpies, featuring in their pre-season friendly defeat at Doncaster.

A statement from Metz read: "FC Metz and Newcastle United have reached a financial agreement concerning French U21 international Sebastien Bassong. He will very soon sign a contract with the English club, who had him over for trial throughout last week."

He has made 87 appearances since making his professional bow in 2005 and has scored one goal.
