Lewis Wing to Sheffield Wednesday: Is it a good potential move? Would he start? What does he offer?

Published

For Sheffield Wednesday, this summer transfer window looks set to be something of a rebuilding job.

Following their relegation from the Championship at the end of last season, and with speculation surrounding the future of a number of their players, the Owls may have to bring in plenty of players to cope with those departures.

One player who is seemingly a candidate to fill one of those roles is Middlesbrough midfielder Lewis Wing, with reports from Yorkshire Live over the weekend revealing that Wednesday are keen on a deal for the 26-year-old.

But just what it mean for Sheffield Wednesday if they were to complete a deal for Wing?

Here, we’ve weighed that up with a look at some of the questions that might arise from these links.

Is it a good potential move?

It does look like this would be a good piece of business for Sheffield Wednesday.

Despite Rotherham’s relegation from the Championship, Wing was impressive during a loan spell with the Millers during the second half of last season.

As a result, you feel as though he could flourish with the Owls in League One next season, as they target a swift return to the second-tier.

Indeed, at 26-years-old, Wing could be an asset for Wednesday for some time to come, and if he does impress in League One, could even bring in a useful profit for the Owls at some point in the future.

Would he start?

You would certainly expect him to.

As exclusively revealed by Football League World earlier this month, newly promoted Championship duo Hull City and Peterborough United are also keen on a move for Wing this summer.

With that in mind, you imagine Wednesday would have to offer Wing plenty of game time to convince him to make the step down to League One for next season.

Indeed, with Adam Reach and Joey Pelupessy having been released by Wednesday at the end of last season, there are also voids in Wednesday’s first-team that they need filling by the likes of Wing.

What would he bring?

As has already been referenced, Wing could offer quite a lot to Wednesday.

He would of course add some strength in depth in midfield, while his Championship pedigree would surely be useful in League One.

As well as that, Wing has shown that he is on occasions capable of coming up with a bit of something out of nothing to get his team back into a game with a goal or an assist.

Given Sheffield Wednesday will no doubt find themselves up against it at times next season, that would certainly make Wing a useful asset to have at Hillsborough.
