Charlton Athletic have completed the loan signing of Wigan Athletic midfielder Nathan Byrne. The 24-year-old winger makes the move to The Valley on a deal lasting until the end of the season. He has made 14 appearances for Wigan Athletic in the Championship this season so far.
Byrne, who can also play at wing back, possesses plenty of Sky Bet League One experience from his time playing for Swindon Town between 2013 and 2015, where he helped the club reach the Play-Off Final. He becomes Charlton’s fourth signing this month already.
The Addicks have snapped up a player that possesses just under 200 senior appearances of competitive football and manager Karl Robinson expects him to be a big creator of chances during his time with the club,
“He’s one of the quickest wingers in the league. He gets to the byline, delivers crosses and we’ve got some really good strikers to capitalise on that.
“He’s an assister. We’ve brought in a top, top player at this level. I’m looking forward to working with him and hope we can get the rewards for his talent. Hopefully he finds a home here where he enjoys playing football.”
