West Ham youngster Kyle Knoyle has joined Wigan Athletic on a season-long loan.

The 19-year-old full back has joined the Latics for the duration of the 2016/17 season, much to the delight of current manager Gary Caldwell.

"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," he told Wigan's website.

"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."

Knoyle is the second young Hammer to leave the club on loan for the entirely of next season, following yesterday's news that George Dobson has joined Walsall.
