Fulham poised to complete signing of Ajax defender Bassey

Fulham are poised to complete the signing of Ajax defender Calvin Bassey.

Bassey, 23, looks set to move to Craven Cottage for around £18m.

Ajax, who signed him from Glasgow Rangers last year, rejected an initial offer of £15m but negotiations continued and a deal has now been agreed.

Bassey, who was born in Italy, is a Nigeria international and can play at left-back or centre-back.

He was with Leicester City prior to moving to Glasgow.
