The potential signing of Calvin Bassey by Rangers was the subject of initial talks between the two sides.

Several clubs across Europe are interested in the 22-year-old, but no formal bids have been made.

Bassey was a key player for Giovanni van Bronckhorst's side last season.

Two years remain on the contract of the Nigerian international.

The versatile defender, who can play left-back and center-back, signed a four-year deal at I Rangers in the summer of 2020.

The Rangers board gave the go-ahead for Joe Aribo to leave the club and join Saints.

The opening day of the Scottish Premiership season will see Van Bronckhorst's men play Livingston.
