Former Wanderers talisman Adam Le Fondre is a free agent after leaving Scottish club Hibernian following the expiry of his contract.

The 37-year-old joined Hibs last summer and went on to make 26 appearances at Easter Road, scoring five goals.

Le Fondre said in a heartfelt message on social media last month that he was grateful for an enjoyable campaign in the Scottish Premiership, although he was “disappointed with how certain people treated me”.

The striker wrote: “I’d like to thank Brian McDermott and Lee Johnson for bringing me to the club and Nick Montgomery for his continued trust in my ability. I had a blast north of the border.

“Thanks to the lads for welcoming me into the dressing room, a really good bunch of people!

“Thanks to the medical and (strength and conditioning) staff for looking after me during a tough period being injured.

“Disappointed with how the season panned out and how certain people treated me but that’s for another day. Special thanks to the fans for making me feel very welcome, it’s truly a special club and I believe they are on the road to great things.”

Le Fondre had spells at Stockport, Rochdale, Rotherham, Reading and Cardiff before joining Wanderers on loan in 2015, scoring nine goals in 17 games under Neil Lennon.

The Whites were unable to re-sign the forward the following summer but he returned to the club two years later, helping Phil Parkinson’s side secure promotion to the Championship.

He signed a permanent deal in the North West and was on target in the memorable victory against Nottingham Forest to beat the drop on the final day.

Le Fondre headed overseas in 2018 to sign for Sydney in the Australian A-League and went on to score 73 goals in 128 games, becoming the club’s second-highest goalscorer.
