Jack Byrne's loan move to Blackburn summer was greeted with plenty of optimism. His spell at Dutch Eredivise side Cambuur had been a success. Now was his time for the Man City player to show his abilities in the tier just below the Premier League.
However, his time at Ewood Park ended disappointingly early last week with the 20-year-old having made just four Championship appearances for Owen Coyle's side. Byrne's loan to Blackburn was initially supposed to be for a full season but Man City recalled him due to a lack of game time.
The Manchester Evening News reported on Wednesday that the plan for Byrne is to again go out on loan for the second half of the season. The alternative would be for him to play with Simon Davies's Elite Development Squad at the club.
One possibile destination for Byrne could be the Scottish Premiership. The Dubliner has been linked with a move to Dundee by the Scottish Sun.
Dundee are currently eighth in the Scottish Premiership. They are managed by former Celtic and Hearts midfielder Paul Hartley.
