The Sun are now reporting that striker James Vaughan could also be joining Rangers having entered talks over a deal with the club.

James Vaughan  - Huddersfield Town

Vaughan, 27, spent last season on loan at Championship club Birmingham City having fallen out of favour at Huddersfield Town, but he failed to score in 16 games for the Blues.

Vaughan could be looking for a new club this sumemr - and it's claimed that whilst he would prefer to stay in England, he has entered talks with Rangers as Warburton searches for attackers who can support Martyn Waghorn and Kenny Miller.

Intriguingly, Vaughan would be reuniting with Rangers assistant David Weir if he does make the move to Ibrox. When Vaughan was coming up through the ranks at Everton and eventually making his professional debut, Weir was the Toffees' captain.

Reuniting with the Scot could be appealing for Vaughan, who is a talented striker on his day and worth a punt despite his injury problems over the years.
