Tottenham, Arsenal battle for Newcastle defender Bassong

Newcastle United face a battle to hold onto defender Sebastien Bassong.

The Journal says Tottenham and Arsenal are readying imminent bids for Bassong as they look to exploit the growing confusion and turmoil at Newcastle United.

With no manager and an owner desperate to sell, the club are in a state of limbo and another frustrating day passed with no significant progress made on either front yesterday.

Although Mike Ashley is aware of Bassong's importance to the squad, the club are not in a position where they can turn down decent bids for any players.
