Ireland youngster Jack Byrne has completed his loan move to Championship side Blackburn Rovers.

The 20-year-old moves to England from Dutch side Cambuur after a successful stint with the Eredivisie side, scoring four goals in 27 appearances last season.

Under-21 international Byrne was called up to train with Martin O'Neill's senior team ahead of the friendly against Slovakia in March and is tipped to have a bright future.

Byrne is a product of well-known Dublin football nursery St Kevin's Boys, the DDSL club who produced Robbie Bray and Jeff Hendrick.
