Official: Gregg Wylde contract cancelled by mutual consent

Jeff J Mitchell

Bolton Wanderers have confirmed that the club and Gregg Wylde have agreed to mutually cancel the winger's contract, allowing him to join a new club this summer.

Gregg Wylde spent a little more than one season at Bolton Wanderers, having signed from Rangers near the end of Bolton's relegation season. 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. 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.

He 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.

Rumor has it that Wylde is on his way back to Scotland now with both Motherwell and Aberdeen vying for his signature.
