The Football League is a hotbed for up-and-coming talent, and a host of players make the step up the pyramid every summer.

League 1 itself is home to a wide array of talented players, young and old, with players across the division subject to interest from Championship clubs and, in some cases, clubs from the golden land of the Premier League too.

Conor Washington made the step up from Peterborough when he joined London club QPR, where he is finally establishing himself in the Rangers squad.

Similarly, George Evans impressed on loan with Walsall before joining Reading part-way through his spell in League 1, and the former Manchester City midfielder became a first team regular in The Royals’ run to the Championship Play-Off Final.

Romaine Sawyers, Jack Payne, Tom Bradshaw … the list continues, and undoubtedly more will follow suit this summer, so here are 5 League 1 talents that could join Championship clubs this summer.
