Former Newcastle United defender Sebastien Bassong has joined Premier League rivals Norwich City.
The 26-year-old has moved to Carrow Road from Tottenham Hotspur on a three-year deal fo an undisclosed fee.
Bassong came through the youth set-up at FC Metz to become a regular first team player, before switching to Newcastle in July 2008 following a brief trial.
The Cameroon international was to only stay on Tyneside for one season, however, and following the Club's relegation from the Premier League in the summer of 2009, he transferred to Spurs, having made 34 appearances in all competitions.
In his three years at the North London outfit, Bassong was never able to hold down a regular role in the heart of Tottenham's defence, and was loaned out to Wolverhampton Wanderers for the second half of the 2011/12 campaign.
At Norwich, Bassong will play under a former Magpies managerial duo in boss Chris Hughton and assistant Colin Calderwood.
