Kaylen Hinds Player Profile
Debut: Crawley Town (A, 2-1), 04/02/2017
Quick young striker Kaylen Hinds was among the new additions to the Boro’ squad; arriving on the final day of the January 2017 transfer window. The electric young striker was signed on loan by manager Darren Sarll for the remainder of the 2016-7 League Two campaign. And the player certainly came to the Lamex in high regard.
Hinds captured the attention of the national press in 2013 as a 15-year-old playing for Arsenal’s U19 side. The Daily Mail (for it is they) said he was the Gunners’ “latest prodigy” in September 2013. And that progress was continuing by the time Boro’ came calling.
The striker – an England U18 international – was becoming a key member of the Arsenal U21 squad. A fast and skilful forward by trade, Hinds can also operate out wide. Boro’ didn’t see the best of him, however. His time at the club wasn’t exactly memorable. Even so, it didn’t stop Wolfsburg swooping for him later in 2017.
