Wylde can leave Millwall in January window

GREGG Wylde is “working extremely hard” on his fitness, according to Neil Harris, but the Lions boss won’t stand in the winger’s way of he wants to leave the club in January. 

Wylde hasn’t played for the club since the EFL Trophy game at Luton on November 8. He hasn’t made a match-day squad since the home fixture against Bristol Rovers four days later.

Shane Ferguson, Aiden O’Brien, Fred Onyedinma and David Worrall are all ahead of Wylde in Harris’ plans, and the former Plymouth man is likely to finish the season elsewhere after failing to make an impact at Millwall.

“At the moment I’ve a lot of options in wide areas,” Harris said. “One thing we’ve not been lacking in is production in wide areas in terms of balls into the box and shooting or scoring ability from Fergie, Aiden in particular, Fred and David.

“Gregg has found himself down the pecking order. I’m always conscious not to drag boys into the squad if I’m not planning on using them.

“He’s been working extremely hard in training and keeping fit.

“In January, Gregg and I will be having a conversation. If he hasn’t forced his way into the team then he will want to go and play football, and rightly so.

“He’s a good boy, he wants to play regularly. That’s a conversation we’ll be looking at once the Christmas period is over.”
