The 23-year-old joined Oxford from Crusaders in the summer of 2018 and is highly rated.
According to WhoScored, Whyte made 29 starts and seven substitute appearances in League One for Oxford this season, scoring seven goals in the process.
The youngster also scored twice in three League Cup matches and played in four FA games for his club this campaign, according to WhoScored.
Whyte is a very talented and promising young winger who can be a success in the Championship.

Never heard of him. What's he like?— Ryan Wise (@ryanwise94) June 2, 2019
Tyler Walker on loan as well, pre season friendly next season, he was non league 12 months ago, unproven at a higher level. Agree full international but its Northern Ireland, slim pickings to be fair.— NFFC only (@nffc_richard) June 2, 2019
