Former Yeovil Town loanee Lewis Wing has been given an extended long term contract with his parent club. Championship side Middlesbrough have given the 23 year old midfielder a deal that runs until the summer of 2022 - just under a four year deal. Wing has broken into Boro's first team during the 2018-19 season, having made five appearances, and one Checkatrade Under-21 appearance, giving him seven first team appearances overall, along with two Checkatrade games.
Wing had joined the club from non-league side Shildon in the summer of 2017, and so has only had just over a year in the professional game, which included his 22 game spell at Huish Park during the second half of the 2017-18 season that saw him play in every match that he was eligible to feature. Although first team appearances at the Riverside Stadium have dropped off slightly in the past few weeks, manager Tony Pulis has been impressed enough to give Wing a new deal at the club. The player himself sees it as a dream come true:
"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."
