The Northern Ireland international is with Hull City on loan from Cardiff City for the remainder of the 2020/21 season.

Born in Belfast, Whyte enjoyed a hugely successful spell with Crusaders between 2014 and 2018, winning three NIFL Premiership titles.

The 2017/18 season was particularly impressive as he scored 24 goals and was named the Ulster Footballer of the Year and the Northern Ireland Football Writers’ Association Player of the Year.

Moving to England with League One Oxford in July 2018, Whyte netted nine goals in 47 matches for the U’s before signing for Cardiff for a seven-figure fee a year later.

He played 30 games in all competitions last season as the Bluebirds reached the Championship play-offs after finishing fifth.

At international level, Whyte featured seven times for the Under-21s before winning his first senior cap against Israel in September 2018, scoring 108 seconds after coming on in a 3-0 win.

He also notched in a 1-1 Nations League draw in Romania and was involved in their Euro 2020 play-off matches against Bosnia-Herzegovina and Slovakia.
