According to The Daily Record, Bolton Wanderers are interested in a move for Kilmarnock winger, Greg Kiltie.

An article from Craig Swan states:

“Bolton Wanderers are eyeing a move for Kilmarnock star Greg Kiltie.

And the Rugby Park ace is also on the radar of Premiership rivals St Johnstone.

Kiltie is amongst the top-team stars who are out of contract in the summer and the playmaker is attracting interest from south of the border.

Bolton are firmly on the trail of the 24-year-old, who has been in Ayrshire for his entire senior career having made a debut at the age of 16 and had loans at Queen of the South, Morton and Dunfermline.

Wanderers are closing in on promotion back to England’s League One and are looking to strengthen if they can complete the mission of escaping League Two at the first attempt.”

So who is Greg Kiltie?

Kiltie has spent the entirety of his career north of the border, coming through Killie’s academy. The former Scotland U19 international has played over 100 games in the SPL.

The winger has clocked up seven goals & eight assists in twenty-eight games for Kilmarnock in all competitions this season.

With his contract up at the end of the season, Kiltie would be available for free should Wanderers pursue the move.

Kiltie is the second winger linked with Wanderers this week - following on from rumours that Aldershot player Joel Nouble is being tracked by the club.
