Calvin Bassey didnt have to think long about a transfer to Ajax. The 22-year-old defender is very happy with his switch to the Amsterdammers.
Ajax takes over Bassey from Rangers FC for a minimum of 23 million euros. “Only now is it starting to get through to me,” he tells Ajax TV. “Just that a club with the status and greatness of Ajax had me in my sights is incredible. Its overwhelming and incredible at the same time. It didnt feel real. Its only now getting a little real, because I see the shirt. Now its not surreal anymore, its great to be here. Its a pleasure to be here.”
Bassey indicated earlier in the day that his choice for Ajax was a no-brainer. “Who doesnt want to go to Ajax? A big club, with a lot of history, they play good football and they play Champions League. Its a no-brainer”, says Lisandro Martínezs successor.
