Matt Elliott Leicester City

Calvin Bassey will look to make an immediate impact at Rangers, says former Leicester City defender Matt Elliott. Bassey has agreed a pre-contract to join Rangers with Leicester receiving compensation for the 20-year-old defender, reported to be £230,000. The left back or centre back played for Leicester’s under-18s and 23s, but he did not make a first-team appearance. Elliot believes the player has moved to Rangers in a bid for first-team football.

Matt Elliot said “Calvin’s intention will be to force his way into that first team at Rangers, He isn’t going up there for a break or a change of scenery. He will want to make his mark. I work for the club’s media channel and do the odd co-commentary on their development squad games. I have seen a fair few of their games this season. Calvin is a big, strong, powerful lad who can play at centre half or left back. He has certainly got the physical attributes. He is very capable for a boy of his age. He is very athletic, has got great pace. He can get forward from the full-back position. First team football is what he needs. He needs to be tested out defensively at a higher level to develop the awareness you need when you are up against players to make clever runs. I am sure he will make a good case for himself to get a starting place.”
