Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock has confirmed he has been looking at Scottish Premiership players ahead of his side’s return to the Premier League – and Gers attacker Josh Windass should be high on his list.

The 24-year-old is reportedly a target for the Bluebirds and selling him to Cardiff for £3million would be a fantastic bit of business by the Light Blues.

Warnock admitted he has been looking at players in Scotland as he beefs his squad up after winning promotion from the Championship.

“I have looked at two or three players in Scotland,” Warnock told TalkSport, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.

“We can’t start bringing stars in from all over the show. We have to bring in five or six players that will fit into the squad.”

Windass ended the season as the Gers’ joint-top goalscorer on 18 goals but his performances regularly came in for criticism from fans as he consistently vanished in big games – and his regular spats with fans on social media are doing him no favours whatsoever.

With the Gers looking at a massive overhaul of players this summer as Steven Gerrard takes charge at Ibrox, moving Windass on will clear up some funds for the incoming boss to strengthen his squad and build a side capable of challenging bitter rivals Celtic.

Despite scoring 18 times, Windass drifts out of games far too often and, particularly when the Gers are struggling, fails to take the game by the scruff of the next when the Light Blues need someone to step up.

Barring another fantastic season, it’s unlikely that the Gers will ever make much more than around £3million for Windass and if Warnock does decide to cough up for the former Accrington man then the Ibrox giants should bite his hand off.
