GREGG Wylde is sounding out clubs in Scotland after being told he is surplus to requirements at Wanderers.

It is understood that the winger is keen on a move back North of the Border this summer after falling completely out of the first team picture under Dougie Freedman.

Wanderers are likely to want only a nominal fee for the 22-year-old, who was not even training with the first team by the end of last season. The Scotland Under-21 international terminated his contract at Glasgow Rangers in the light of the club’s crippling financial problems and signed officially at Bolton last March.

But red tape held up his debut and he failed to get registered in time to make an impression as the club slid out of the Premier League.

A few impressive performances in pre-season raised hopes that he would play a part in the Championship – but he failed to earn a place under Owen Coyle or Freedman when he came to the Reebok in October.

In November, Wylde made a loan move to Bury which saw him play seven times for the Shakers in two months.

Hibs then pulled the plug on a permanent move in January, leaving the youngster in limbo once again.

Wylde has two years left on his contract at the Reebok and would need to take a considerable wage drop to earn a deal in Scotland, where the season drew to a close yesterday. Meanwhile, another of Wanderers’ forgotten men, Keith Andrews, has returned to Ireland to take his coaching badges after undergoing rehabilitation in Qatar on his troublesome Achilles tendon problem.

The experienced midfielder had an operation to correct the injury in March and is hoping to be fit for pre-season at the start of July.
