Jermain Defoe has posted on his Instagram story that he is ‘so proud’ of Calvin Bassey following his transfer from Rangers to Ajax.
The 22-year-old was the subject of strong interest across Europe, including a number of Premier League clubs and his former manager Steven Gerrard at Aston Villa, but he is now going to don the colours of the Dutch champions.

A STEP UP FOR BASSEY?
In terms of the league Bassey is playing in, it is a step-up, but is it that leap forward with him deciding to don Ajax colours now?
At the end of the day, they are the Dutch champions and they, just like the Gers, are expected to win the league every season, so there is that element of pressure.
But what perhaps pips it towards the Amsterdam-based club is the fact that they are in the Champions League.
Celtic regained the Scottish Premiership title last season, so that meant that Rangers missed out on the biggest domestic competition in the world, as well as the big pot of money.
The Europa League final was another chance for Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side to create history, a game Bassey thrived in, but once again, right at the death, they were pipped to that crown by Eintracht Frankfurt.
Nonetheless, it will be interesting what steps Bassey takes in his career now and how far he can go because he has all the tools in his locker.
Just how close Bassey was to joining a team in the Premier League will remain unanswered for now, but after leaving Leicester not so long ago, it wouldn’t be a surprise if this road to Ajax also leads him back to what is being dubbed as the best league in the world in England.
