£10M Bassong bid rejected

So basically, Newcastle have rejected a £10M Spurs bid for the lynchpin of their relegated defence. I don't know what's funnier. Them possibly wanting more or us placing such a high estimation on the player. Newcastle aren't even paying the bloke that much in the way of wages (edit: which is probably why they are in no hurry to get rid).

£6M tops. Even that's being generous.


EDIT: Bit of an update. 'arry has denied we've made a bid. Ooh, we all feel stupid now, don't we? Or is this another transfer dance of confusion? Probably means we're about to offer £15M.
