Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard is far from finished with his summer spending, it seems, ahead of starting the new season at Bournemouth. reports that Aston Villa are among a clutch of Premier League and Bundesliga outfits interested in Rangers star Calvin Bassey, who will cost over £25m.

Bassey is open to discussing a move from Rangers to Villa Park after two years in Glasgow.

The 22-year-old joined the Premiership club under Gerrard for just £230k in compensation after leaving Leicester City without a first-team outing, but has made 65 in Scotland so far.

Any deal for the six-cap Nigeria international can see Bassey line up beside Carlos in Aston Villa’s backline when they face Bournemouth on the opening day of the new season.
