Wycombe Wanderers are delighted to announce the return of defender Anthony Stewart on a two-year deal.The 22-year-old arrives back at Adams Park on a free transfer having left Crewe Alexandra at the end of his contract, after making 10 appearances for the League 1 side last season.
Stewart progressed through Wycombe’s youth system and made his first-team debut in January 2012 before establishing himself as a regular in the side the following season, netting his first professional goal with a late winner at home to Fleetwood Town.
He continued to impress both at centre-half and right-back in the 2013/14 campaign, contributing four goals in his 39 appearances.
However, he opted to leave the club that summer in pursuit of football at a higher level, and eventually found a home at Gresty Road on an initial loan deal in November.
Blues boss Gareth Ainsworth said: “Anthony is a tremendous talent and I’m delighted that he’s agreed to come back to Adams Park.
“We understood his reasons for leaving the club and we did our best to keep him here. However, this is a fresh start for both Anthony and for us, and I’m confident that he can pick up where he left off as an excellent young player with real potential to develop.
“He’s got pace, he’s a threat in the opposition box and he can play in a number of positions. I’ve no doubt he’ll be a great addition to the side.”
