"Devastated" Bassong wants out of Newcastle

Newcastle United defender Sebastien Bassong is disillusioned with the situation at relegated Newcastle and wants away. Arsenal and Tottenham are ready to offer him a route back to the Premiership and a source close to the Frenchman suggests he is more than ready to leave.

"Sebastien is devastated by the madness at the club and wants to go." the source told The Newcastle Chronicle.

"He cost the club hardly anything and feels he has justified his transfer fee.

"Compared to the rest of his team-mates he has been earning peanuts, picking up £5,000 a week while some of the players who have been earning five-figure salaries and hardly kicking a ball.

"He loves the fans - but who can blame him for wanting to leave?"
