TRANSFER TRACKER STATUS: Trade
Nashville SC have acquired defender Nick Hinds from the Seattle Sounders in exchange for $50,000 General Allocation Money, the clubs announced Monday. Seattle will retain a sell-on percentage should Hinds be transferred in the future.
Hinds, 23, is a left back and former US youth international. He is a graduate of the Sounders academy and spent two seasons at the University of Akron before signing a deal with Seattle's USL Championship affiliate Tacoma Defiance, where he made 68 appearances. He also made one appearance in the US Open Cup for the Sounders.
“Nick is a talented young player who has been a real standout at the youth, collegiate, and USL Championship levels,” Nashville GM Mike Jacobs said in a club statement. “He brings outstanding experiences from US youth national teams and a successful youth academy in Seattle. His pace and ability to join into the attack makes him someone who could become a successful left-sided player at this level.”
