Tottenham Hotspur defender Sebastien Bassong has said that he would not be averse to leaving the club in January. Bassong has dropped to fourth choice in the Spurs backline behind Michael Dawson, Younes Kaboul, Ledley King and William Gallas and has not started a single league game for the Lilywhites in the 2011/12 season.
The former Newcastle defender was widely tipped to join Queens Park Rangers earlier this summer but Spurs refused to give the go ahead to the deal after their failure to sign Bolton Wanderers’ Gary Cahill.
Bassong has been restricted to European appearances and played in Spurs’ Europa League win over Rubin Kazan yesterday night.
I’m interested in everything. I’m not going to say “No, I’m not interested in anyone who’s coming for me.
First of all, I want to play for Spurs. When I’m playing here, I’m happy. Then, if I’m not playing enough, then we’re going to think about something else.
But for now, I played last night, I’ve come back fine – I’m happy.
When you get a chance to play, you feel more confident. When the manager gives you a chance to play, no matter which games it is, you feel better.
