At the weekend Millwall confirmed the signing of Gregg Wylde from Plymouth Argyle.

The 25 year old left winger joins us officially for a two year deal on July 1 when his contract at Home Park comes to an end, and he is manager Neil Harris’ third capture of the summer so far.

He debuted in 2009 for Scottish side Rangers, and also counts Bury, Aberdeen and St Mirren as clubs prior to his move to Plymouth this time last year.

In 2015/16 he made over 50 appearances for the side, including against us in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy, and he returned seven goal.

The former Scotland Under 21 international told the official site after penning terms.

‘I’m delighted to have signed. It’s been a frustrating few weeks after the Play-Off Final with Plymouth. I’m so pleased to be here, and with Neil Harris as well. He really sold the club to me and came to watch me play a few times too.’

Reacting to the signing himself, Harris believed he’d offer us even more of a goal threat now given his threat on the wing, and he was delighted to add him as another piece in the puzzle ahead of the campaign where automatic promotion to the Championship will be the aim after last year’s narrow Play Off miss.

‘He came to light last year when we played down there in the JPT and he gave us a bit of a torrid time for the first half hour. We watched him another seven or eight times and every time he was highly recommended. He is an out and out left winger, likes to get down the flank and get crosses into the box.’

Harris went on to say.

‘He is an old fashioned type of player who Millwall fans will enjoy watching. It is great to have him on board and is a statement of intent because I want attacking players on the pitch. I felt at odd times last year maybe we did not have as much of an attacking potent threat coming off the bench that I wanted and we relied quite heavily on Aiden O’Brien to be that lone threat. Bringing in a couple more attacking players in David Worrall and Gregg won’t harm opportunities young players have as they can slide into positions left by other people like Lee Martin, Ed Upson and Chris Taylor, who all performed for us last year. I am delighted with out attacking options; we have players who can create goals and score them.’
