Norwich City will have Sebastien Bassong available for selection against Tottenham Hotspur following his recovery from a calf injury.

Centre-back Sebastien Bassong will be included in the Norwich City squad for tomorrow's Premier League encounter against his former club Tottenham Hotspur.

The 26-year-old has missed Norwich's last two matches because of a calf complaint that he sustained during a training session.

However, he has been declared fit for the visit of Spurs to Carrow Road and manager Chris Hughton has admitted that it was "good to have him back" as the Canaries go in search of their first win in six outings.

"He is now back fit. He is a big plus for us. He has been a very big player for us. You can talk about his contribution to the games but he is a big personality around the place," Hughton told the Eastern Daily Press.

"He is very good for the other players. He has that bit of experience with the younger players and it is really good to have him back around the squad.

"I don't like to single one player out but he is important to us. Not just his ability but he is very good in that group of players."

Bassong has made 21 appearances for Norwich in all competitions this season.
