The next Gray or Odubajo? Four English-based rough diamonds for Rangers to target

Rangers FC Gate

Rangers boss Mark Warburton is looking to add to his squad after sealing promotion and hopes to replicate his previous successes.

Having secured Rangers' promotion on Tuesday, manager Mark Warburton is already thinking about next season.

Speaking to TalkSPORT on Wednesday, Warburton gave an insight into his summer recruitment plans, insisting the club will do their homework and 'recruit wisely'.

The 53-year-old hinted that he would look to emulate his success at previous club Brentford, for whom the two players he cited - Andre Gray and Moses Odubajo - were plucked from the lower leagues and made the Bees around £10 million in profit.

With that in mind, here are four English-based names you may not have heard of (yet) who fit the criteria outlined by Warburton...

Alfie Mawson (centre-back, Barnsley) - Warburton doesn't expect Spurs loanee Dominic Ball to return to Ibrox next season, which would leave his defence a little thin on the ground. At 22, Mawson is far from the finished article, but is someone the manager will know well from his Brentford days and could be eased in gently, behind Rob Kiernan and Danny Wilson.

Romaine Sawyers (central midfielder, Walsall) - Essentially a slightly taller, stronger Gedion Zelalem, who like Ball is set to return to his parent club, Arsenal, next season. The 24-year-old, who cracks a mean shot, has contributed five league goals and eight assists this term - and as things stand, he won't cost a penny.

Danny Mayor (winger, Bury) - The Shakers began the campaign brightly but have tailed off into mediocrity, which could be Mayor's cue to leave. The productive 25-year-old was League Two's player of the year for 2014-15, and after failing to make his mark at Sheffield Wednesday, he may be keen to try his luck at another (albeit bigger) big club. He could take Billy King's place if the Hearts loanee fails to return.

Matty Taylor (striker, Bristol Rovers) - The 26-year-old has scored more league goals than anyone in England's top four divisions this season (24) in what is, impressively, his first taste of the Football League. By the looks of things, he'll be a free agent this summer - whether Rovers are promoted or not - making him ideal for Rangers, who are likely to offload Dean Shiels and Nicky Clark.
