First professional deal for Blues winger Hurst

First professional deal for Blues winger Hurst

Kyle Hurst has penned his first professional contract with the Club.

The deal runs until June 2023, plus a one-year option.

The Milton Keynes-born 18-year-old joined Blues' Academy following a spell with MK Dons.

He is an exciting dribbler, who causes panic for defences with his ability to carry the ball and go past opponents at will.

He can attack off either foot and adds a different dimension when he plays.

He made his breakthrough last season with the Under-23s before notching up game time with Paul Robinson's Under-18s this season before being bumped up again to the Development Squad.

Hurst scored a stunning late goal against Barnsley to send nine-man Blues through to the Fifth Round of the FA Youth Cup against all the odds in January.

Hurst has trained with the First Team group since Blues returned to Wast Hills after lockdown.

He was among the substitutes for Blues warm-up game against Wolves before the season proper resumed but has been sidelined by a hamstring niggle of late.
