Gregg Wylde released by Bolton Wanderers

Jeff J Mitchell

We knew it was coming and this news is no surprise at all. Sky Sports are reporting that Bolton Wanderers have released young Scottish winger Gregg Wylde, leaving him available to sign with another club on a free transfer. Wylde's time at Bolton was a tumultuous one that never saw him grab a foothold of the matchday squad.

Owen Coyle had been a long-time admirer of Gregg Wylde, making a bid for the then-Rangers player in the summer ahead of the 2011/12 season. Rangers' financial woes would then see Wylde leave the club in order to help save the jobs of some non-playing staff. He signed for Bolton Wanderers in March of the same season but because his signing was outside of the recognized transfer window, the Trotters needed clearance from FIFA. There were promises that it would happen in due course but delay after delay meant that Wylde would play no part in Bolton's relegation campaign.

He officially signed for Bolton Wanderers in the summer ahead of the 2012/13 Championship season and was widely tipped to play a part for the Trotters. The preseason saw him combining well with Marcos Alonso down the left flank but with Chris Eagles and Martin Petrov ahead of him in the rotation, Wylde's chances were nonexistent. He would sit on the bench for a few of Bolton's matches early on in the year but would not make a single senior appearance for the Trotters.

Wylde was soon sent on loan to Bury by Dougie Freedman, where he made seven appearances. Upon returning to Bolton Wanderers, Wylde was largely out of both the first and reserve team fixtures.
