Having signed an 18 month deal in January, Livingston’s Gregg Wylde has been told that his stay in West Lothian can come to an end. Less than a year after signing, the former Rangers youth academy graduate may be embarking on the eleventh club of his career.
Ayr United look to be an excellent potential suitor for the 28-year-old.
His future is up in the Ayr at the minute
Ironically, whilst Gary Holt is honest with regards to Wylde’s future, The Honest Men could be the ideal employers for the winger to get his career back on track.
With Declan McDaid having departed for Dundee, Ian McCall’s men ought to be in the market for a wide player. With Wylde being told he is “free to leave”, it seems as though Livi will demand a minimal fee.
What remains to be seen is whether he would be prepared to drop a division.
You need only look at Dundee United duo Liam Smith and Lawrence Shankland’s spells at Somerset Park which has seen them earn moves to Tayside.
Ayr were able to get the best out of them after the duo were deemed surplus to requirements at Hearts and Aberdeen respectively, making the club an appealing proposition for Wylde.
A Wylde career to say the least
What may put Ayr off though, as previously mentioned, is the fact that Wylde has boasted a club for every finger on his hands. The fact he appears unsettled everywhere he’s been is bound to be a turn off for Ian McCall.
That being said, should Ayr move for Wylde, they have to offer him a one year deal. The incentive should be there from the player that if he performs well, he can either extend his stay in Ayrshire or opt to move on yet again.
