Born in Wetherby, West Yorkshire, Hines' youth team before playing for Middlesbrough was Kirk Deighton Rangers after he went to the trial there for six weeks[2] and progressed through the academy full time.[3] However, his career was troubled with a serious knee injury in October 2005, but Hines recovered fully.[4] Hines previously suffered an injury during the same year.[5]

After recovering from a serious knee injury, Hines was given number thirty-eight shirt for the 2006–07 season[6] and 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.[7] After making another appearance against Bristol City in the fourth round of FA Cup, which saw them through in the penalty shoot-out,[8] Hines, however, suffered an injury that kept him out for the rest of the season.[9]

Ahead of the 2007–08 season, Hines signed his first professional contract with the club, signing a two-year deal.[10] On 18 August 2007, he made his Premier League debut as a substitute against Fulham, which saw them win 2–1.[11] Hines went on to make two appearance later in the season: once in the League Cup match against Northampton Town[12] and another in the FA Cup match against Sheffield United.[13]

Following the club's relegation to the Championship, Hines struggled to regain his first team place, but soon get a first team chance following the club's defensive crisis[14] and made his first appearance of the season on 12 September 2009, in a 3–1 win over Ipswich Town,[15] followed up by another appearance, in a 3–1 win over Sheffield Wednesday.[16] After appearing two league matches, Hines never played for the club again this season, as he continued to suffer from injuries.[17][18][19]

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.[20] Seb continued to impress with assured performances at the heart of the Middlesbrough's defence with a cool display in the draw at Preston North End and another commanding showing in the 2–0 victory over Scunthorpe United 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.[21] For his performance, Hines signed a contract with the club, keeping him until 2013.[22] The following month on 8 March 2011, Hines scored his first league goal for the club, in a 2–1 win over Derby County[23] and afterwards, Hines was given a handful of first team appearances until he was involved in a collision with Connor Wickham, in a 3–3 draw against Ipswich Town on 12 April 2011, resulting him a broken jaw[24] and after a successful operation on his jaw, Hines, however, was out for the rest of the season.[25] Hines finished the 2011–12 season, making sixteen appearances and scoring once in all competitions.

In the 2011–12 season, Hines appeared in four matches in all competitions at the start of the season and scored his first goal of the season in the second round of League Cup, in a 2–0 win over Peterborough United.[26] However, Hines was soon sidelined when he suffered a knee injury that kept him out for five weeks.[27] It wasn't until on 18 October 2011 when Hines made his return from the first team, in a 2–0 loss against Nottingham Forest.[28] Hines then scored his first goal for the club on 5 March 2012, in a 2–0 win over Barnsley.[29] For the rest of the season, Hines appeared in the first team, where he kept his place and went on to make twenty-seven appearances and scoring two times in all competitions.

Ahead of the 2012–13 season, Hines signed a contract with the club, keeping him until 2015.[30] Hines scored his appearance of the season, 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.[31] However, 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.[32] As the 2012–13 season progressed towards the end, Hines continued to appear in the first team despite suffering from injuries.[33][34][35][36] Hines went on to make twenty-seven appearances and scoring once in all competitions.

In the 2013–14 season, Hines struggled to regained his first team place under the management of Aitor Karanka. As a result, Hines was placed on the loan list.[37] Instead, Hines spent the most of the season, playing in the reserves. Despite this, Hines made his first appearance on 19 October 2013, where he made his first start, in a 3–2 loss against Barnsley.[38] Despite this, Hines made four appearance in the 2013–14 season.
