Remeao Hutton Player Profile
Debut: Portsmouth (H, 3-3), 29/08/2020
With the 2020-1 season fast approaching, Alex Revell continued to mould his new-look Boro’ squad by signing Remeao Hutton. The young, versatile full-back came to us from Birmingham City on a season-long loan; the deal giving the Blues the option to call him back after six months if he was storming it. In addition to being capable at either right or left back, Hutton can also play at centre half or in midfield. With such flexibility, it meant Revs had a number of options open to him.
Revs said of the lad when he came in: “He’ll be challenging both full backs for a place in the side and – although we have a small squad – we want competition for places so that all the players know they have to perform each and every day”. Hutton would be facing a fair amount of competition too; experienced chaps such as Luke Prosser and Ben Coker coming in before him – but also offering a bit of know-how for the young Blues player to learn off. Will he make use of that wisdom to depose the older lads from the squad?
Time will tell.
