Tommy Wright’s first summer signing in 2017, Kyle McClean joined on an initial one-year-deal after successfully completing a trial in the closing weeks of the previous season after his release by English outfit Nottingham Forest. During the 2016/17 season, Kyle was a regular for the Forest U23 side and was also included in Northern Ireland’s U21 squad for a European Championship Qualifier against Estonia at the beginning of June.
Kyle featured on a regular basis for the Development Squad and he made his first competitive appearance for the first-team when he came on as a substitute against Celtic at McDiarmid Park in November 2017, replacing Richard Foster. In December 2017, he signed a one-year-extension to his existing deal keeping him at McDiarmid Park until May 2019.
He featured in two League Cup matches early in the 2018/19 season against Falkirk and Forfar Athletic and featured regularly for Alan Maybury's Saints Reserves in the first half of the season. With first-team opportunities limited, the Manager decided to send Kyle out on-loan back to his native Northern Ireland to Linfield.
While at Linfield, Kyle played his part in a successful campaign where he managed to win two pieces of silverware. He picked up a Danske Bank Premiership league winners' medal and a Northern Irish League Cup winners' medal at Windsor Park.
During his spell away he also picked up his first two Northern Ireland U21 caps and was rewarded on his return with a new one-year-deal at McDiarmid Park keeping him at Saints until at least May 2020.
Kyle's home jersey is kindly sponsored by Henri & Gordon Mentiply, and his away jersey is available to sponsor.
