 Ajax gives Bassey New defensive Role.

Bassey, 22, has played in multiple roles since his senior team debut at Rangers.

He featured mostly as center back last season for Giovanni van Bronckhorst, but has also been deployed as a left-back or LCB in a three-man defence.

The Leicester City academy graduate can also play as a wingback, but Schreuder believes the Nigerian is most productive as a CB.

Ajax spent £16.8m for Bassey following the departure of Lisandro Martinez to Manchester United.

The young Nigerian has since settled into his new environment and is forming a formidable partnership with Jurrien Timber in the heart of the defense.
