Lewis Wing arrived at Middlesbrough in July of 2017 from non-league Shildon on a free transfer.
Wing would spend his first season with Boro on loan at Yeovil, but after an impressive start to the 2018/19 season, Wing has been awarded a new deal that will keep him on Teesside till at least 2022.
‘I think the gaffer likes how hungry I am and I give my all in everything I do’
On signing his new deal with Boro, Wing stated:
“It is my dream, and it’s coming true at the moment.
“It’s been a mad year, and I’m happy to put pen to paper and get on with things.
“I think I’ve got a lot to improve on still, but at the start of the season I couldn’t have asked for much more.
“I think the gaffer likes how hungry I am and I give my all in everything I do. Hopefully I can keep on building on that, digging away and nail down a place in the first team.”
Lewis Wing impresses for Middlesbrough
Despite spending last season out on loan, Wing would find himself thrust into Boro’s starting eleven at the beginning of the season.
Wing started Boro’s first game of the season vs Millwall.
Middlesbrough would come from behind to draw 2-2 and Wing would earn an assist.
Wing would also start in Boro’s next three games vs Sheffield United, Birmingham and Bristol City.
Middlesbrough would win all three of those games and Wing would earn another assist vs Sheffield.
Wing also impressed vs Preston in the League Cup were he would bag yet another assist.
However, Wing has not even been in the squad for several of Boro’s latest league games.
Given Boro have somewhat dipped off a bit in recent games, it might be time for Tony Pulis to recall Wing to add that creativity back to Middlesbrough’s midfield.
