20-year-old Leicester City defender Calvin Bassey has signed for Rangers on a pre-contract agreement.

The left-sided defender, who can play full back or at centre half, has agreed a four-year deal with the Glasgow side and will complete his move after the transfer window opens.

Rangers are due to pay training compensation to the Foxes for the deal.

Italian-born Bassey, who was also known as Calvin Ughelumba at Leicester, was a member of the Foxes development squad and never made an appearance for the first team.

Speaking to Rangers TV, he said:

“I’m really excited. Rangers are a massive club and I’m just buzzing to get started.”

Bassey is Steven Gerrard’s second signing of the summer following the arrival of Ianis Hagi on a permanent deal.
