Sebastien Bassong wanted by Lille and Lyon

Lille and Lyon chase loan deal for Tottenham defender Bassong

Tottenham defender Sebastien Bassong is wanted on loan by
French sides Lille and Lyon.

The Cameroon international is frustrated at his
lack of first team action at White Hart Lane and Lille will try to persuade him
to return to France by promising regular action and a move in the summer if he
impresses.

However, Tottenham are reluctant to loan the player and would prefer
a permanent transfer now after QPR and West Ham also enquired for the
25-year-old.

Bassong joined Spurs from Newcastle in 2009 in an 8.5m deal but
is behind Michael Dawson, William Gallas and Younes Kaboul in the pecking
order.
