€22m Rangers star set to join Ajax despite Brighton interest

Ajax are set to sign Rangers centre-back Calvin Bassey with the 22-year-old set to replace Man United bound Lisandro Martinez at the Dutch giants. 

According to Fabrizio Romano, there is a full agreement in place between the clubs for a €22m fee to be paid, whilst there will be also a sell-on clause included in Bassey’s new contract. Those details are broken down into €5m in add-ons and a sell-on clause of around 10% of a future sale states Romano.

Bassey will undergo his medical very soon in order to join Ajax as the Rangers man faces the responsibility of replacing Lisandro Martinez at the Dutch giants, with the Argentine set to join Manchester United very soon.
