Gamertag Changeover

I have an existing WLID from many years ago and it appears that at some point I also made a gamertag.

This gamertag has never been used.

Today I attempted to use the gamertag I have been using for years offline (with associated saves games ect) online only to find that the the unused gamertag is associated with WLID.

Is there anyway to remove the unused gamertag so that the offline tag can then be linked to the WLID or do I just have to start up a new WLID.

Cheers in advance.

Create a new dummy email address and follow the instructions to switch the WLID out from the unused gamertag so that the WLID you want to use is freed up for the tag you are using.
