DONE DEAL: Norwich City Beat QPR to Sign Tottenham Defender Sebastien Bassong

Cameroonian to make Canaries switch.

Norwich have won the race for unwanted Spurs defender Sebastien Bassong, according to Sky Sports.

The 26-year-old is set to sign for the Canaries in the next 24 hours, despite interest from QPR and West Ham.

Bassong worked under Norwich boss Chris Hughton at Newcastle and is understood to be keen on a reunion with the Irishman.

Hughton has moved quickly to bring in defensive reinforcements, following his side’s disastrous 5-0 opening day defeat at Fulham.

The arrival of Jan Vertonghen and the return of Steven Caulker have pushed Bassong way down the pecking order at White Hart Lane and, along with Caulker and Michael Dawson, he did not make the squad for Spurs clash with his former club Newcastle on Saturday.

Bassong arrived at Spurs from St James’ Park in 2009 for £8m and played a crucial part in helping the club to an historic fourth placed finish in his first season.

But the former Metz star fell out of favour under former boss Harry Redknapp and was used only sparingly during the past two campaigns.
