Yeovil Town manager Darren Way has said that he is hoping that Middlesbrough midfielder Lewis Wing can return to the club for a second spell. The 23 year old was one of the few 2017-18 season loanees that managed to nail down a regular place in the starting line-up during the second half of the season, clocking up 22 appearances in his half-season loan.
At present, any thoughts of a return to South Somerset would be on hold. Wing is currently part of a Middlesbrough squad that has been out in mainland Europe. He has been in their side against Austrian side Sturm Graz and German side SV Sandhausen and is currently in Bavaria, waiting to play against Augsburg tomorrow evening.
They do return to English this weekend, and so manager Tony Pulis - friends with Yeovil Town owner Norman Hayward - could have reached a decision on where he sees Wing's future during the 2018-19 season. The view of the local press is that the player they took from Northern League side Shildon back in 2017 probably would be sent out for a second loan spell. However, given parent clubs often like their development squad players to take steps upward each season, it may be that they have different plans for him.
Way indicated as part of his post match interview that he wanted to see Wing back at Huish Park, thus throwing his hat into the ring. This will be another situation where we'll have to see how it pans out, but it's unlikely anything would happen either way, during this week.
