​Aston Villa hero Agbonhalor: What can Rangers offer Bassey?

Former England international Gabriel Agbonlahor is surprised that Calvin Bassey left Leicester City.

The Nigeria international departed in 2020 after five seasons at the club.

He has gone on to become a mainstay in the Rangers team, helping them to reach the Europa League final and win the Scottish Cup.

The 22-year-old is now being linked to a host of top teams around Europe.

"I don't think he will [extend his contract at Rangers], to be honest," the 35-year-old toldFootball Insider.

"The problem with Rangers and Celtic is they can't pay the money that teams in the Premier League can.

"What can Rangers offer Bassey? That's the issue. He could probably get double the money at Aston Villa. I'm sure he would be reluctant to sign a new contract and see what is out there for him, to be honest.

"There will be clubs out there for him, 1000 percent. He's quick, calm on the ball, strong, and good in the air. I'd take him at Aston Villa tomorrow. A lot of clubs in the Premier League will look at him.

"I'm surprised that Leicester let him go, to be honest. That's very strange."
