Bassong: QPR would like to bring the Tottenham defender to Loftus Road
Sky Sports sources understand that QPR have expressed an interest in out-of-favour Tottenham defender Sebastien Bassong.
The 25-year-old was reduced to a bit-part player last season at Tottenham as they excelled in Europe, and just missed out on UEFA Champions League qualification.
Bassong had expressed a desire to leave the club earlier this summer having sought clarification about his future with Harry Redknapp.
Indeed, it is believed the club would not stand in his way if a suitable deal for the Cameroon international can be found.
QPR are looking for more defensive options and are presently closing in on a deal for Anton Ferdinand from Sunderland.
And Bassong would also fit that bill as they seek to bring players into their squad with Premier League experience.
