A sell-on clause is also included in the deal.

The final valuation for the Nigerian is close to the sum Ajax paid to Scottish heavyweights, Rangers for Bassey last summer.

Bassey who is a versatile defender is expected to put pen to paper next week.

Despite Brighton & Hove Albion being the first Premier League side to show interest in Bassey’s signature, the 23-year-old was keen to remain at Ajax but had a change of mind after he was informed of the decision of the club to sell him.

He scored once in 25 league matches for the former European champions last season.
