Nigerian international Calvin Bassey is expected to depart Ajax after just one season in the Dutch League, according to a report that the Eredivisie champions have received a €23 million bid for the defender from a Premier League club.

The Scottish Giants’ record sale occurred in the summer when the 23-year-old left Ibrox after the Gers and Ross Wilson reportedly agreed to a £23 million deal with Ajax.

Bassey’s experiences at Ajax, however, haven’t quite gone as planned, and there is now rumours of an offer from the Premier League.

The Nigerian has frequently been used as the fall guy for subpar performances and failing league play that has Ajax in third place in the Dutch top flight during a season of significant changes at the Amsterdam Arena.

According to Dutch analyst Mike Verweij, an unknown Premier League team has made a €23 million bid for the former Rangers player, and Ajax may be able to recuperate the money they spent on Bassey.

“To my amazement, a bid of €23mhas been received for Calvin Bassey,” said Verweij told Telesport, which is a podcast run by De Telegraaf in the Netherlands.

“It’s from the English Premier League. I don’t know which club.

“And by the way, some people at Ajax think that he can be sold one day for 40 million Euros.

“I don’t know which club it was, although it won’t have been one in the top five.

“On the one hand, there’s a lot of constructive criticism that has come in for Calvin Bassey this season.

“But also, if you look at him defensively, I can imagine there’s interest from clubs.

“And for English clubs, he would be a good signing too because of the homegrown rules.”

A potential sell-on fee that was stipulated in the contract that saw Ajax sign the Nigerian will likely result in a profit for Rangers, so they will be hoping the transfer goes through.
