Gunners shopping in the Magpies

The Gunners are preparing an €11 million bid for the Magpies centre-back at the end of the season, a fee that represents a huge mark-up for the Geordies. He was €500k. Can't believe it.

According to a newspaper report from The Daily Mirror, Arsenal are set to raid Premier League rivals Newcastle United for defender Sebastien Bassong at the end of the season.

The 6ft 2in centre-back arrived at St. James’ Park from French Ligue 2 club Metz last summer for the bargain price of €550,000 (£500,000).

If I am Joe Kinnear, this is a no-brainer. If this Sebastien is so brilliant, Newcastle would have done so much better. And not leaking in goals like a strainer..
