Jamie O'Hara is convinced new Wolves signing Sebastien Bassong will shore up a defence guilty of shipping sloppy goals ahead of Sunday's derby clash with West Brom at Molineux.

Midfielder O'Hara knows all about Bassong's qualities from their spell together with Tottenham.

O'Hara, who is optimistic of overcoming a groin injury in time to face the Baggies, said: "Seb really is a top-class international player. When Tottenham qualified for the Champions League, he played every game that season."
