Biographical Information
Sebastien Bassong
(At a Glance)
Date of Birth: Jul/9/1986
Gender: male
Place of Origin: Cameroon

Sébastien Aymar Bassong Nguena is a French-born Cameroonian football defender who currently plays for Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League and the Cameroon national team.

Strong central defender joined us from Newcastle United in August, 2009.

And he could not have made a better start to his Spurs career - scoring the winning goal against Liverpool on his debut in our opening game of the 2009-10 season.

A Cameroon international, Sebastien featured heavily alongside Ledley King in the heart of our defence during the early part of the campaign with fellow centre-halves Michael Dawson and Jonathan Woodgate sidelined through injury.

But even as Harry Redknapp regains his full compliment of defenders as the season progresses, Seb continues to play a key role in the side. 

Sebastien moved the move to England, and previous club Newcastle, in July 2008 from Metz where he made 79 appearances in three seasons.

He played 34 times for the Magpies during his debut campaign in the Premier League, but could not help the North East side avoid relegation from the Championship, before arriving in N17.
