WALSALL manager Jon Whitney is resigned to the possibility of losing striker Tom Bradshaw to Rangers. 

The 23-year-old has been linked with the Ibrox club after an impressive season in which he bagged 17 League One goals for the English club.

Bradshaw's form in front of goal earned him his first senior cap for Wales in March and the centre-forward may well have earned a spot in the Euro 2016 squad were it not for a calf injury that ruled him out.

His contract runs out in 12 months and Gers boss Mark Warburton is believed to be keen, but Championship clubs Reading, Preston North End and Birmingham City are also understood to be tracking him.

Walsall boss Whitney appears unconcerned about Bradshaw's potential exit as he puts faith in his ability to replace the striker.

He told the Walsall Advertiser: "I wouldn't worry for one minute about it because once he's gone, he's gone. I couldn't do anything about that.

"I'm very dynamic and proactive. I'll deal with what's in front of me. If Tom moves on, I'll wish him all the best.

"I'll do what I can to keep him but if he goes I'll find somebody else.

"It might take time to develop him like it did with Tom for the first 12 months, to make him stronger and more robust for League One but I can do that again.

"I've got a good eye for players and we understand the kind of young, energetic targets with huge potential that we are after."
