DONE DEAL: Bohemians announce Reece Byrne joining Newcastle


Newcastle United's signing of 18-year-old goalkeeper Reece Byrne is officially complete.

Irish club Bohemians have confirmed that Newcastle are set to secure Byrne for the coming years.

The young keeper has been pictured training with the team in recent weeks, even taking to Instagram to confirm he was joining the club.

Per Chronicle Live, Bohemians manager Declan Devine said: "It's a fantastic move for the boy. It's not every day you get the chance to sign for a giant in the Premier League and that's what Newcastle are.

“When I came in I gave him his first-team debut against Dundalk and I thought he did very well. This is the next step for him. He wants to get across to England and play at the highest level he can.

“His development is a testament to the academy staff and what they have done with him over the last number of years and providing him with the platform to go on and play first-team football. They deserve enormous credit. We will all look on with great interest to see how his career progresses."
