“He’s a strong and dynamic athlete who is very much the modern day full back. He will develop further and we are excited to have made another strong addition to our group.

    Hmmmmm…This is one to watch out for and quickly snap up because I foresee him progressing really well at Ibrox under Steven Gerrard who is well known for believing and improving young talents just as he has done and still doing on our very own ARI-BALL (Joe Aribo). Interestingly, he is a Left footed LEFT BACK, A position where we are in need of more competition. I hope Coach Gernot Rohr does his usual smart move when Basssey hits the ground running at Rangers

    • Let’s see his performance first before pressuring Rohr, if he’s good enough for the eagles then off course am sure he will be invited. By the way, is Bukayo Saka deciding for us or adopting 3 Lions? He should remember England got Ben Chilwell, who is equally young and he will always be considered ahead of him

        Am not pressuring anybody! I’m not NFF that influences team selection..lol. I’m only giving my one cent.

        Meanwhile, About Saka. I think the guy will play for Nigeria ahead of England. The way he acts so far has been more sensible than that Eze of a guy. And it has also been in the news that his Father wants him to represent Nigeria. We can only pray he acts fast. Probably after settling his Club issue(Extending or not extending his deal at Arsenal), he will make a decision
