Sebastien Bassong – seems confident of joining Newcastle United
Seb talked to Setanta Sports today:
“Yes, I’m optimistic,” . “I spoke with Kevin Keegan, who told me he’s happy with me. That’s a great feeling.”
“I don’t know if I’ll be transferred, my agent is aware of it, nevertheless this spell has been fulfilling.”
“I discovered a new culture, a different football, and such experiences always help you grow. I don’t know what’s next, we’ll have to wait and see.”
“The French-speaking and all the squad’s players helped me settle and feel comfortable.”
“It was all about English football, but I didn’t see any dodgy challenges to test me; I like this style of football, it suits me.”
“I spoke with the coach [Yvon Pouliquen] on the phone; he asked me how the trial was, nothing more.”
“I believe if Newcastle want me and if they reach an agreement with Metz, I will be allowed to move there.”
Good words from Seb, and it looks like the lad is ready for the challenge at Newcastle, and that’s good to hear.
We’d be surprised if Kevin doesn’t take up the option of signing the youngster, hopefully within the next couple of days, and then he could play in the upcoming tournament in Mallorca.
