Sebastian Tony "Seb" Hines (born 29 May 1988) is an English professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Orlando City in Major League Soccer.

Club career[edit]

Born in Wetherby, West Yorkshire, Hines' youth team before playing for Middlesbrough was Kirk Deighton Rangers. His career was troubled with a serious knee injury in October 2005, but Hines recovered fully. On 16 January 2007, he scored on his first team debut with a scorching effort from outside the box against Hull City in the FA Cup Third Round. On 18 August 2007, he made his Premier League debut as a substitute against Fulham.

On 5 January 2009, Hines signed on loan for one month at Derby County.[1] Though he never played in a first team game for the club, he played and scored in a reserve match against Aston Villa. On 12 February 2009, Hines was loaned out to League One club Oldham Athletic on a month's loan.[2]

Having impressed from limited opportunities during the 2010 season, on 11 December 2010, Hines replaced the suspended David Wheater alongside Matthew Bates in the starting line up of Middlesbrough's defence for the club's 1–0 victory over Cardiff, where he was rewarded with the Man of the Match award.[3] Seb continued to impress with assured performances at the heart of the Middlesbrough defence with a cool display in the draw at Preston and another commanding showing in the 2–0 victory over Scunthorpe on 1 February 2011 in which the highlight was a fine measured lob by prolific goalscorer Kris Boyd which brought about his 200th career goal. He got his second goal for Middlesbrough on 8 March in a 2–1 win over Derby. Seb Hines scored again in the Boro's win over Crystal Palace on 25 August 2012, after Grant Leadbitter's corner skimmed Ishmael Miller's head, hit Hines on the rear and deflected in.

In the League Cup against Swansea City Hines scored an own goal – the only goal of the match – in the 81st minute to make the score 1–0, which knocked them out of the competition.

Hines was loaned to MLS club Orlando City on 24 February 2015.[4]

International career[edit]

Hines has made appearances for England at U16 and U17 level. Hines is also eligible to play for the United States national team, as his father is an American citizen who served in the US military.[5]

Hines has been called up for the England under-19 squad and made his debut against Spain 7 October 2006 in Austria to prepare for the European Under-19 Championship Tournament.

Personal life[edit]

His father is American and his mother is English.[5]
