West Ham defender Kyle Knoyle has joined Wigan Athletic on loan for the 2016-17 season. The 19-year-old has joined up with his Latics team mates as they prepare for next week’s training camp in Portugal.
Knoyle spent the latter part of the 2015-16 campaign on loan in the Scottish Premiership with Dundee United having made his senior debut in the UEFA Europa League for West Ham earlier in the season. Knoyle, who has made three appearances for England’s Under 18 side, becomes Latics’ fourth signing.
Latics’ boss Gary Caldwell is delighted to have added him to his squad and said:
“Kyle is a young player with potential, one who has been identified as having the qualities we are looking for and was watched last season. We are optimistic he can develop here with us and make a positive contribution to the squad and we’re happy to have him on board.”
