The sturdy Super Eagles star has been heavily linked with a transfer to the Premier League, and the deal is almost completed
Super Eagles defender Calvin Bassey has completed the first part of his first medical ahead of his transfer to Premier League club Fulham, Soccernet reports.
Bassey has been heavily linked with a transfer away from Dutch Eredivisie giants Ajax to the Premier League this summer. The 23-year-old defender just joined the club last summer, but he failed to adjust to the club’s playing style.
Brighton were in the mix at first, as they were looking for a replacement for Levi Colwill, who looks primed to remain at Chelsea. However, Fulham emerged as frontrunners, and they have gone about their business sharply.
They agreed on a €21million fee with Ajax, and he travelled to the US for his medical on Thursday.
According to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, Bassey has completed the first part of his medical, and they just need to complete some minor details before the transfer is sealed. In fact, the transfer is supposed to be completed, and Bassey should be announced by Saturday.
Bassey is expected to take over Anglo-Nigerian defender Tosin Adarabioyo’s place in the Fulham backline as the latter is set to join Monaco.
