The Cameroon international has seen his first-team chances limited this season, leading to suggestions that he could depart White Hart Lane in search of playing opportunities.
"Whether I stay or go, a solution has to be found. I need to play. I wasn't expecting it. That's football ... You can find yourself at the top or at the bottom just as quickly. This obviously means you ask yourself questions," Bassong told L'Equipe.
The 25-year-old joined Spurs from Newcastle United in 2009.
