The Leicester City academy graduate has been heavily linked with move to Premier League side Aston Villa and German Champions Bayern Munich.
You never know,” van Bronckhorst told the Herald when asked about the potential of Bassey moving on this summer. “Of course, the potential he has is big, the potential also that a team will notice he has.
“He came in, he is very sharp, he is very energetic and happy. I think it is good for him to keep going, keep going, and to give everything he has to this team, which he has done so far really well.”
The Rangers Coach, however advised the Super Eagles star to follow the footpath of his compatriot Joe Aribo, who spent three seasons with the Gers, before leaving this summer.

“I am more than happy to help Calvin in his development and to make sure he comes to reach a level where everyone will say ‘well, the best thing for him is to move on’. They are all winners,”He concluded.
