Reading set to swoop for Spurs defender

by Matthew Harris on June 21, 2012

As last season was coming to a close, newly promoted Reading were linked with a surprise move for Tottenham’s Ledley King. However, with the club captain set to retire, it’s claimed today that the Royals have altered their sites and are considering a bid for Sebastien Bassong instead.

Seb seems to have been around for some time but he is still only 25 and therefore has to have real value for a side such as Reading, given his Premiership experience and relatively young age.

Clearly he’s been frozen out at Spurs and unless a new manager comes in with an entirely new opinion, a fee of £4m for the centre back may seem cheap, but perhaps it’s pretty good business.
