Tottenham Hotspur

Following Newcastle's relegation to the Football League Championship, Bassong expressed his desire to leave the club, with Manchester City, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur linked with him. On 6 August 2009, it was confirmed that he had passed a medical at Spurs signing a five-year deal and completed an £8 million move to the North London club that same day. Bassong scored on his debut for Tottenham in a 2–1 victory over Liverpool, heading in the winner from a free kick cross from team-mate Luka Modrić in the 59th minute. As the season progressed, Bassong became a regular starter for Tottenham playing in all of the first 7 games of the 2009–10 Premier League season. During the season Bassong made 38 appearances and scored once. Bassong scored Tottenham Hotspur's first ever Champions League goal versus Young Boys of Berne which Tottenham came from 3–0 down to 3–2. On 4 December 2010, he played the full 90 minutes alongside William Gallas, and scored Tottenham's goal, in a 1–1 draw against Birmingham City at St Andrew's. On 30 January 2011 Bassong partnered Michael Dawson in the 4–0 FA Cup fourth-round defeat against Fulham at Craven Cottage. On 2 February, due to injuries and suspensions, he partnered Gallas in central defence in a 1–0 win against Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park which kept Tottenham in fifth place in the league. On 15 May 2011, Bassong made a substitute appearance coming on for Danny Rose on 82 minutes in Tottenham's 2–0 victory over Liverpool at Anfield.
