Ajax new signing Calvin Bassey has opened up about his relationship with Mohammed Kudus since joining the  club.

The Nigeria international joined the Eredivise champions for a record-breaking transfer fee from Rangers worth 23 million euros.

Ajax beat off competition from other interested clubs to sign a five-year deal with the player.

The club statement read: “Ajax has reached an agreement with Rangers FC and Calvin Bassey for the transfer of the defender to Amsterdam.

“The English-Nigerian player has signed a contract with Ajax that will take effect immediately and will run for five seasons, until June 30, 2027. Ajax will pay a transfer fee of EUR 23 million to Rangers FC. Including variables, that amount could increase to EUR 26.5 million.

“Calvin Bassey was born on December 31, 1999, in Modena, Italy. The Nigerian international was under contract with Rangers FC until mid-2024. He arrived in Austria today to join the first team’s training camp.”

The Super Eagles defender is settling in since moving to the Netherlands and seems to be getting on well with  teammate Mohammed Kudus.

 "We knew each other because we played against each other not so long ago, with Nigeria and Ghana. In the field it was a lot less friendly, haha. The rest of the players I know mainly from television, but they are everyone is very relaxed and try to put me at ease at Ajax. On the field you always get to know each other quickly anyway and the click feels good," concludes Bassey.

Bassey made only 15 appearances during his debut campaign with Rangers when they won their first top-flight title in a decade.
