“Any club who has the budget will be trying to get him because he is a top,young defender who will only get better. The good thing for Rangers is that he is still under contract and if they are to sell him they will get a lot more money for him.
“I have been really impressed with Bassey. He has been really impressive this season.
“He caught my eye especially in the big European games and for me he was as good as anyone in the Europa Cup final.
“He is quick, physically strong and very committed. For me he is a real defender.
“You have a defender who is very good on the ball and the other is more like Giorgio Chiellini who is very strong but also has the quality to play. I think Bassey falls into that latter category.”
