The Magpies are ready to offer their French youngster a new deal but he is waiting to see what Arsene Wenger comes up with.

Joining the French-speaking contingent at the Emirates would appeal to Bassong, as he said in an interview yesterday.

Bassong: "Newcastle want to make me sign a contract extension.

"I'm waiting to see what they're going to offer me.
My agent told me about Arsenal's interest. But I don't think now is the moment to speak about it.

"I must be focused on my football and at the end of the season we will see what happens then.

"At the moment I'm 100% focused on Newcastle and I don't see any reason why this would change.

"I would lie if I said Arsenal are not a club I'm interested in. But many things can happen before we can speak about a transfer."
