Ireland Under-21 international Jack Byrne has joined Blackburn Rovers on a one-year loan deal from Manchester City.

The 20-year-old midfielder, who has been with the Citizens from the age of 15, spent last season in the Dutch Eredivisie with SC Cambuur, where he scored four times in 27 appearances.

The Dubliner trained with the Ireland squad ahead of Euro 2016 but didn’t make Martin O’Neill’s final selection.

Byrne will join up with fellow countryman Shane Duffy, who featured for Ireland against Italy and France at Euro 2016.

Byrne wrote on his Instagram account: "Absolutely delighted to join @onerovers on loan for the season 😃 thanks to the manager and the club for the opportunity can't wait to get going now."
