Newcastle United have reported, on their official web site, that the club has indeed agreed a fee with FC Metz for their promising French Under-21 defender Sebastien Bassong.
Sebastien Bassong – agreed fee, agreed terms and passed medical – great!
The 22-year-old French Under-21 International has also agreed personal terms and passed a medical with the Newcastle United club.
Newcastle United are now said to be in the process of completing the formalities of the transfer.
Bassong, meanwhile, has already traveled to Mallorca with the rest of the Newcastle squad, since he was earlier announced by Newcastle as being part of that squad, ahead of this weekend’s Summer Cup.
We would like to welcome Sebastien to the club, and certainly from the comments he has already made, he is delighted to be at Newcastle – and seems a really nice lad.
We think he’s going to do just great at the club – hope so anyway.Â Â 😀
