Speedy and versatile right-sided player who can operate as a full-back, a wing back or in midfield.

Byrne signed for Latics in a three-year deal in August 2016 for an undisclosed fee from Wolverhampton Wanderers but after an intermittent start to his career at the DW, he spent the second half of the season on loan at Charlton Athletic having made just 14 appearances in the Sky Bet Championship, eight of them from the bench.

He returned to Wigan in time for pre-season ahead of the 2017-18 season.

Beginning his career at Tottenham Hotspur, Byrne earned his first taste of first-team football during a loan stint at Brentford in 2011.

He aided his development further with temporary switches to AFC Bournemouth, Crawley Town and Swindon Town, before making a permanent move to Wiltshire.

While at Swindon, he played more than 100 matches, scoring 11 goals, and in 2014/15 was named in the League One Team of the Year, as the Robins reached the play-off final.

He netted a hat-trick against Bradford City on the opening day of the 2015-16 season which earned him a move to Wolverhampton Wanderers and, following a season at Molineux, joined Latics on transfer deadline day in August 2016.
He played 17 league games on loan Charlton, scoring once in a 2-1 victory at Bolton Wanderers.
