6:29 am on 22 August 2012

Cameroon defender Sebastien Bassong has joined Norwich City from Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur on a three-year deal following three years at White Hart Lane.

The 26-year-old centre back, who started his career with Metz in France, has also played for Newcastle United and at Wolverhampton Wanderers where he had a loan spell last season.

The Norwich Manager Chris Hughton, who also worked with Bassong during a previous spell in charge at St James' Park,

says he's delighted to have brought in a player with power, pace and Premier League experience.

Bassong played 44 times for Spurs, scoring twice. He made his international debut for Cameroon in 2009 and has won 15 caps.

Norwich were hammered 5-0 at Fulham in the opening game of the season on Saturday.
