Middlesbrough move to tie down talented duo on long-term deals

Published

Middlesbrough have offered new contracts to Lewis Wing and Marcus Tavernier as they look to secure the talented pair on longer deals.

The midfield duo were two of very few positives under Tony Pulis in what was a disappointing previous season as they missed out on the top six on the final day.

Tavernier, who is only 20-years-old, featured in 20 games and scored three goals and is very highly-rated at the Riverside.

Meanwhile, Wing, who is four years older than his teammate, scored the same number of goals from 28 appearances last season and enjoyed a very impressive 2019.

And, according to TEAMtalk, new deals are on the table for the players which the club hope they will sign, even though they are currently without a manager.

Former player, and academy coach, Jonathan Woodgate is the favourite for the vacancy after Pulis departed and the youngsters would hope to be a key part of his plans moving forward.

A decision on the new boss is set to be made in the next week.

The Verdict

This is good news for Middlesbrough and the club are right to try and sort the future of the talented pair as they are very exciting players.

From a football perspective and a financial aspect it makes a lot of sense to secure their futures and Boro will hope they sign.

There will be particular relief if Tavernier signs as he has been linked with a move to the Premier League in recent weeks.
