Is Bassong The New Charlie Insomnia?
Look at the class we have lost: Ginola (homesick for France but joined Spurs); Domi (homesick but ended up at Leeds); Goma (homesick actually went back to France); Distin (got £5,000 a week more from Man City); Robert (head up his arse); Bernard (head up his arse); and N'Zogbia (willing to go anywhere)!
Sebastien Bassong has hinted that if Arsenal were interested in attaining his signature he would be interested in swapping St James Park for the Emirates.
Bassong: "Newcastle want to make me sign a contract extension, indeed. I'm waiting to see what they're going to offer me.
"My agent quickly told me about Arsenal's interest. But it's not the moment to speak about it. I must be focused on my football and on the end of the season, we will see what happens then.
"At the moment I'm 100 percent focused on Newcastle and I don't see any reason why this would change.
"But I would lie if I said that Arsenal are not a club I'm interested in. But many things can happen before we can speak about a transfer."
