Villa ahead of Bolton for released Rangers winger Gregg Wylde

English clubs are queuing for released Rangers winger Gregg Wylde.

The Mirror says Aston Villa boss Alex McLeish is heading the race to sign Scotland Under-21 midfielder Wylde.

Bolton boss Owen Coyle, who bid £700,000 for Wylde in the summer, is also keen but has taken Arsenal left-winger Ryo Miyachi on loan so his need is not as pressing.

Wylde is expected to meet most of the interested clubs in a ­whirlwind round of talks and could be offered better first-team chances in the Championship.

Southampton, Blackpool and Bristol City are also keen.
