Rangers transfer news: Gers target former Man City starlet Cameron Humphreys as Bassey replacement

Cameron Humphreys Rangers

Former Manchester City starlet Cameron Humphreys is set to head back to the UK this summer, with Scottish Premiership giants Rangers keen on a deal, TEAMtalk understands.

Central defender Humphreys has a host of clubs looking to seal his signature, and he is a free agent after deciding to leave Belgian club Zulte Waregem after three years.

Humphreys, who made his debut for City aged just 17, is now 23 and ready to return home.

We understand a host of clubs are taking a close look at Humphreys, including Europa League finalists Rangers.

The Ibrox outfit are hunting for a new centre-back over fears that Calvin Bassey could be sold this summer.

Newly promoted Bournemouth are also keen along with Huddersfield, Sheffield United, Stoke and Middlesbrough.

Humphreys’ only two appearances for City came in the FA Cup. And while he was a key performer for the club in Premier League 2 he was allowed to leave the club for Belgium in 2019.

The centre-back is also a regular for England at youth levels. That’s despite the fact that he’s never really been given the chance to shine in his own country.

Bassey exit could leave Rangers short

Interest from Rangers stems from concerns over Bassey’s long-term Ibrox future.

The powerhouse defender shone on the European stage when he produced an incredible performance in the Europa League final loss to Eintracht Frankfurt.

West Ham and Aston Villa have both been linked with Bassey. However, the latter are know likely to be out the race after signing Sevilla’s Diego Carlos.
