Sheffield Wednesday are considering making a potential move for Middlesbrough midfielder Lewis Wing this summer with the Owls tracking the 26-year-old’s situation, according to Yorkshire Live.
Wing is facing an uncertain future at Middlesbrough this summer after he was allowed to make the move on loan to Rotherham United in the January transfer window.
The 26-year-old was a strong performer for the Millers in the Championship and he managed to score two goals and provide two assists in 20 appearances.
It is believed that Rotherham are keen to re-sign the midfielder this summer. While it has been suggested that Middlesbrough manager Neil Warnock could use their interest in the midfielder to their advantage with them eyeing up Michael Smith.
While it has also been reported that the likes of Hull City and Peterborough United are also potentially interested in making a move to sign Wing during the summer transfer window.

The latest report from Yorkshire Live though reveals that Sheffield Wednesday have now entered the race for Wing this summer. It is believed that the Owls have placed signing a new midfielder towards the top of their list of priorities and that they have been tracking the 26-year-old.
This would be an excellent signing for Sheffield Wednesday, with Wing the sort of player who should be able to be a strong performer at League One level. The midfielder has shown that he is someone with Championship quality in possession and he can make things happen in the middle of the park and come up with vital goals in the final third.
Wing would add a lot of quality to the Owls’ midfield, but it is going to be very difficult for them to make this move happen you would think. Rotherham might be best placed to sign him given he has already spent time there on loan and that Middlesbrough are after their striker in Smith as well.
While both Hull and Peterborough would be able to offer Wing the chance to stay in the Championship. However, should Sheffield Wednesday pull off this singing then it would be a major coup for them and they would deserve a lot of credit for securing the 26-year-old’s services.
