Defender Kyle Knoyle joined Latics on loan from West Ham United in the summer of 2016 as the team returned for pre-season training, however an unfortunate elbow injury saw the youngster miss out on Sky Bet Championship preparations.
CAREER SO FAR
The 19-year-old's progression through the ranks at Upton Park saw him debut in August 2015 during West Ham's Europa League campaign in a 2-1 defeat to FC Astra.
After continuing to impress in the Hammers' Under 21s, Knoyle earned himself a loan move to Scottish Premiership side Dundee United, linking up with Latics' striker Billy Mckay.
Knoyle made 11 appearances in Scotland, but was unfortunate come the end of the season as United were relegated to the Scottish Championship.
