It's OK, they'll have a new manager next week that might play him.

Has officially left APOEL. Where is there a transfer window open for him this time of year? Might be as well to soak up the last month of good weather in Cyprus with his payoff and then get himself back fit ahead of a potential move in January.

If he's unattached, surely he can join a club at any time? The last thing Jack needs is a holiday!

Free agents don't need to wait for a window. So Byrne and Brady can join any team whenever.

Indeed, you would think they'd get a f**king jiggle on too!

MLS season starts in February so they’ll bring him in at Christmas time, I’d imagine he’ll be back training with Rovers until then without officially signing for them

Technically they do for some countries. Can't join a LOI team because he wasn't a free agent before the window closed. Could be the same in a few places.

This is the same for all countries where the transfer window closed on August 31st. He has very limited options at the moment.

I could be wrong here, trying to find a clear answer in an official leagues handbook, but I think that might only apply to players who were registered with their club and league before the window shut. Byrne wasn't registered with Apoel this season.

Yes, Jack must have registered as a free agent before the window closed. 

His only options now are countries where the transfer window is still open. Long story short looks like he won't play a game the turn of the year. Poor bastard. That's bogey luck.

Gosh, did he even play a game for APOEL? 

I'd imagine it's back to the LOI for him...

He played a couple of games. Then he had back surgery which ruled him out for the rest of the season.

Apoel had a financial meltdown on the back of not qualifying for Europe. Byrne amongst others was on the chopping list to get them off the wage bill.

While there is definitely bad luck involved whoever advised him to move there in the first place should be shot out of a cannon into space. If they're still advising him then you can only say shame on Jack.

Just to clarify because a few posters have queried it, his situation is different to Brady's. He can't join a club in pretty much any of the European leagues, including Ireland, England or Scotland, as he was not released by APOEL before the European transfer window closed. This rule exists because otherwise you would just have clubs and players taking the piss out of the transfer window by being released and re-signed at any time during the year.

So it will almost certainly be January before he plays again unless he goes somewhere unusual. If he goes to the MLS as previously rumoured he won't play a competitive game again until March. Some might say that's bad luck but presumably it was a conscious decision by Byrne not to take whatever payoff he was offered before the window closed and to hold out for more at the expense of playing again any time soon.

If he has negotiated well he will at least leave Cyprus a wealthy man, albeit to the further detriment of his football career.

I can think of 10,000 reasons a week why it might not have been as bad advice as you might think.
