Rangers' next signing of the 2016 summer transfer window could well be Niko Kranjcar, after the Croatian midfielder agreed to make a move to Ibrox.

Kranjcar, who has been plying his trade in the second tier of the American league system with the New York Cosmos, is believed to have agreed in principle to move to Rangers, with a deal set to be finalised this week.

It's clear that Mark Warburton is targeting some experience and calmness with his signings, and Kranjcar along with Joey Barton would greatly increase the average age of the side, but also bring undoubted quality and pedigree to the team after his years with Portsmouth, Tottenham, Dynamo Kiev and the Croatian national team.

If the moves goes through, it could potentially give Rangers an all-new starting midfield of Jordan Rossiter, Barton and Kranjcar - with Matt Crooks and Josh Windass also likely to be involved, showing how the centre of the park has been a priority for recruitment this summer.
