Both Reid's parents have Māori ancestry. He affiliates to Tainui through his father and to Te Rarawa through his mother. He was born in North Shore, Auckland, but moved from New Zealand to Denmark at the age of 10 with his mother and Danish stepfather. He always maintained contact with his father and his family in New Zealand.
Reid signed a youth contract with SUB Sønderborg, before moving on to play youth football with Danish Superliga club FC Midtjylland. He was one of the first players to graduate from FCM's football academy, the first of its kind in Denmark, coming through the system alongside Midtjylland teammates Jesper Weinkouff, Christian Sivebæk and former teammate, Simon Kjær. In November 2005, Reid signed a professional contract with FC Midtjylland. Aged 17, Reid made his FC Midtjylland debut in the Royal League tournament against Norwegian side Vålerenga in a 4–0 win. He made his league debut for FC Midtjylland coming on for David Nielsen as a substitute in the 78th minute. Playing few games in seasons 2005–06, 2006–07 and 2007–08 it was not until season 2008–09 that Reid made 28 appearances and scored his first goal against AaB Fodbold in a 3–2 loss on 23 March 2009 and scored his second in the league in his next match against AC Horsens in a 3–1 win on 5 April 2009. Reid also established himself in the starting eleven throughout the season until Reid left the club.
West Ham United
Reid signed for West Ham United on 5 August 2010, on a three-year contract for an undisclosed fee. His transfer fee was the subject of a dispute between West Ham United and FC Midtjylland as West Ham withheld the fee to bring to UEFA's attention fees owing to them from the sale of Alessandro Diamanti to Brescia. He made his Premier League debut on 14 August, in a 3–0 loss to Aston Villa, and scored his first goal for the club in a 5–1 win against Burnley in the Fifth Round of the FA Cup on 21 February 2011. In his first season for West Ham United Reid's first team opportunities were limited, making just 12 appearances in all competitions as the club were relegated.
For the 2011–2012 season Reid stayed at West Ham following relegation to the Championship, and scored his first league goal for West Ham United in a 4–1 away win over Nottingham Forest. Reid also scored the winning goal against arch-rivals Millwall in a 2–1 home win on 4 February 2012. West Ham finished the season by winning the Football League Play-Offs, and promotion back to the Premier League.
In summer 2012, Reid opted to stay and train with his West Ham teammates ahead of the new Premier League season rather than represent New Zealand at the London Olympics. He scored his first ever Premier League goal in West Ham's 3–0 victory against Fulham on 1 September 2012, and in May 2013 Reid signed a two-year extension to his contact until the end of the 2014–15 season. Arguably his best season since joining the club, Reid was rewarded for his form on 8 May 2013 when he was named Hammer of the Year.
Reid scored the opening goal in a 3–0 away win against rivals Tottenham Hotspur in October 2013. However, in November 2013 he suffered an ankle injury in training which required surgery. He made his return in February 2014 in a 2–0 home win against Swansea City. Reid made his 100th appearance for West Ham in all competitions on 15 April, in a 1-3 defeat away to Arsenal.
On 20 September, Reid scored the first goal after just two minutes in a 3-1 win against Liverpool at Upton Park. In March 2015, Reid signed a new six-and-a-half year contract with West Ham, after much speculation over his future at the club.

Reid received Danish citizenship in 2006 and was subsequently called up for the under-19 national team. He played for various Danish age-grade representative teams, in particular the under-19s and under-21s, and played in the 2009 European Under-21 Championship qualification tournament.
On 11 March 2010, Reid stated that he wanted to play for the senior New Zealand team, and on 13 March 2010 he made himself available for New Zealand's 2010 World Cup selection. On 10 May 2010, Reid was included in New Zealand's 2010 World Cup squad even though New Zealand national coach Ricki Herbert had never seen him play. He made his international debut in a friendly against Australia in Melbourne two weeks later. His second appearance came in the All Whites' shock 1–0 victory over Serbia, leaving Ricki Herbert "suitably impressed" with Reid's performance, supplanting Ben Sigmund on the right side of Herbert's three-man defence.
On 15 June 2010, Reid scored an equalising goal in stoppage time against Slovakia in their opening game of the 2010 World Cup, thus securing a draw as well as his first ever international goal and New Zealand's first ever point in a World Cup finals match.
On 12 October 2010, Winston picked up his first international red card against Paraguay in Wellington for a "vicious" studs-up tackle on striker Federico Santander in the 90th minute of the All Whites' 2–0 defeat.
Following the retirement of Ryan Nelsen from international football in 2013, Winston Reid was named captain of the All Whites. On November 7, 2013, Reid was ruled out of the All Whites' FIFA World Cup playoff against Mexico, not only leaving a void on defense, but also with his successor as captain uncertain. As of October 2016, Reid has won 20 caps for his country.
