Rangers will have a 10% sell-on clause on Calvin Bassey, with the Nigerian set to seal his move to Ajax, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.
The Italian journalist has also confirmed that the Gers will receive €22m (£18.7m) up front for the defender, with another €5m (£4.25m) in add-ons:

Brighton, Aston Villa, West Ham, Arsenal and even Manchester United had been credited with an interest in Bassey, but Ajax have stolen a march on their rivals by swiftly agreeing a fee for the centre-back.
The Eredivisie champions are in a strong financial position after selling the likes of Sebastien Haller and Ryan Gravenberch this summer, while they are also expected to receive a sizeable fee for Lisandro Martinez.
In terms of Bassey’s replacement, reports have suggested that a move for Liverpool’s Ben Davies could be on the cards, although Rangers are not thought to be in a rush to reinforce their options at the back.
