Image for Tierney Terms- Sky Sports get onboard the Bassey Bus

Having failed to sell Alfredo Morelos for Dembele Dollars the message from Ibrox is that they won’t accept a penny less than the £25m that Celtic banked for Kieran Tierney as the biggest clubs in the world prepare to battle it out for Calvin Bassey. 

In two seasons at Ibrox Bassey has started 31 out of 76 SPFL Premiership matches, has won two trophies and is still waiting for his Champions League debut. KT joined Arsenal in 2019 after more than 100 Celtic appearances including two seasons in the Champions League. 

Despite previous failed attempts to sell off Morelos, Ryan Kent and various others Bassey is now getting the full treatment, halfway through the four year deal that he signed after leaving Leicester City in 2020 

Tonight Sky Sports claims: 

Bassey is also being tracked by clubs in the Bundesliga and it is understood it would take a bid in excess of £25m – the current record received by a Scottish club when Kieran Tierney left Celtic for Arsenal – to bring Rangers to the negotiating table over a potential sale. 

Villa boss Steven Gerrard is a big admirer of the Nigerian international, having lured him to Glasgow him from Leicester City for around £230,000 two years ago, and Villa are trying to pursue a deal quickly to stave off competition from elsewhere. 

Sky Sports News has been told Bassey is settled at Ibrox but would be open to talking to Villa about a possible move to the Midlands. 

However, it is understood Rangers do not want to sell the 22-year-old, who made 50 appearances across all competitions and was named in the Europa League team of the season following the club’s run to the final. 

Connor Goldson, Allan McGregor, Steve Davis and Leon Balogun will be out of contract next week. Aaron Ramsey and Amad Diallo have returned to their parent clubs.

    Desperado, touted to all defences,
    He should come to his senses,
    And know he will stay.
    The millions on offer,
    they will never proffer,
    Caaaaalvin Bassey,
    Your contract will run down,
    If you don’t tell your agent,
    To seek Fleetwood Town.
    There’s a proper coach who can show you,
    That sometimes it’s better,
    Learning under old Bhoys.

    If they do sell him it will be undisclosed as they don’t want to be embarrassed. Why did they not officially say how much Patterson sold for. The klan will go joe bananas when they find out he left for £3 million probably £1 million add ons.
