Sebastien Bassong in Watford action against Ipswich's Stephen Hunt.

Sebastien Bassong admitted he has no idea what the future holds for him, as his loan from Norwich City – to the side currently keeping them outside the Championship play-off places, Watford.

The centre-back is due back at Carrow Road in the new year, having joined the Hornets in October.

And while he played in all of their Boxing Day defeat at home to one of his other former clubs Wolves, Watford remain above the Canaries and among their rivals for promotion to the Premier League.

“It would be very weird (to keep Norwich out of the play-off places) – some people are surprised Norwich allowed me to go to Watford but I didn’t even think about it at the time,” said Bassong.

“If I stay at Watford it’s going to be a bit of a competition between the club that owns me and the club who has me on loan. It will be interesting!

Bassong, speaking to The Sun ahead of their defeat yesterday, added: “The loan ends in January so we will take from there.

“We’re doing well at Watford and I think they would be keen to extend my loan. But it’s not up to them.

“My future at Norwich is a bit complicated. I had a really good time there for two years and can’t forget that. I don’t really speak to Neil Adams and did not, even before the loan.

“The only thing he said was he was not going to stop me from going on out on loan.

“So Watford was a good opportunity for me. He said nothing and just accepted it. I don’t know what Norwich have in mind, but I’m sure I’ll find out.”

City’s player of the season in 2012-13, Bassong has made 11 appearances for the Hornets – playing the full match on nine occasions – after his pre-season was hit by fitness issues.

  • "He said nothing and just accepted it" Oh Really!?! - beggars belief actually, that a player who cost millions would be left to get on with sorting out his own loaning - Bassong is playing us for a bunch of mugs. Sell.

  • He certainly looks like he is enjoying the pies at Watford. Amazing how a player can go from Club Player of the Year to Club Slayer of the Year in just a few months. It's obvious there is a problem between the Bassong and Adams. Position untenable I would say.

  • Those with short memories may forget the dissent and negativity that Bassong spread through out the squad in the season he helped Norwich get relegated. Sell now to anyone stupid enough to make an offer.

  • Something between and N City was wrong. Only the players and management know the truth. However, would Bassong be a help or a hindrance in the present set up. So far City have got along splendidly without him. Apparently he is on a highly paid contract. Get rid and spend the money elsewhere.
