Tree, shrub or other identification

Hello everyone,
I’m Thomas; I recently rescued this tree or shrub from outside an abandoned house and was wondering if anyone could please help me identify it? It looks like the top half has died but the bottom is producing leaves.
Thanks in advance
Thomas
(Just hope the pictures work)

I'll take a stab but am not certian but it looks like Golden Vicary Privet. You should prune all the deadwood down to above where the leaves appear and amend the soil when you plant it in the ground.

Thanks for the help. Should I prune all the deadwood now or wait till spring?

That sure is a Golden Vicary Privet. My aunt has that in her garden. You should wait until spring to see the beauty of that plant. Just a little patience and you will see great results. :)
