Khaleem Hyland (born 5 June 1989) is a Trinidadian international footballer who plays for Al-Batin as a midfielder.[5]

Club career

Early career

Born in Carenage, Hyland began his career in 2007 with San Juan Jabloteh. In May 2007 it was announced that English side Portsmouth were close to agreeing a deal for the player.[6] In August 2007, Hyland went on trial with Scottish side Celtic, but a £450,000 bid from the club was turned down.[7] After he left San Juan Jabloteh in May 2008, Portsmouth were once again linked with signing Hyland.[8] However, the club's initial application for a work permit was rejected by the Home Office.[9] In September 2008 Portsmouth announced that they were still interested in signing Hyland.[10] Hyland had to wait for a work permit to join Portsmouth, and it was announced that he would move to the club's Belgian feeder club, Zulte Waregem.[11]

Zulte Waregem

Hyland's loan move to Zulte Waregem was made official on Transfer deadline day, which is 2 February 2009,[12] but his future at Zulte-Waregem became unsure when both clubs decided to stop their partnership in June 2009.[13] A week later it was announced that Hyland was now signed on a permanent basis.[14]

Genk

He signed permanently for Genk on 9 August 2011, on a five-year-contract.[15][16] On 9 May 2013, he assisted Bennard Kumordzi's goal to help his club win the 2013 Belgian Cup Final 2–0 against Cercle Brugge.[17]

Westerlo

On 12 June 2015, it was announced that Westerlo had signed the player on a one-year contract.[18]

Saudi Arabia

Hyland moved to the Middle East and signed with Saudi club Al Faisaly in June 2017. He scored his first goal on 14 October 2017.[19]

In September 2020 he signed for Al-Batin.[20]

International career

Hyland played for the national under-20's at the 2009 FIFA U-20 World Cup.[citation needed]

Hyland made his full international debut for Trinidad and Tobago on 26 January 2008 against Puerto Rico,[21] and he scored his first international goal on 7 June 2008 against Jamaica in a friendly match at the Marvin Lee Stadium.[22]
