Middlesbrough’s Lewis Wing is a target for Millwall, Preston North End and Rotherham United, according to the Northern Echo.

The 23-year-old has played a key part in Boro’s Carabao Cup run this season and has played a handful of games for them in the league.

However, some Championship sides are keen on loaning him in the January transfer market to guarantee him more regular first-team football.

Millwall are in the hunt for some reinforcements to their squad in January and are identifying potential targets to help them climb away from relegation danger. Wing is someone who would offer them another option in midfield.

Preston North End are keen as well. Alex Neil’s side have not been able to replicate their form of last season in this campaign but the potential loan signing of Wing would give them more quality in their ranks.

Rotherham United are the final club to be credited with an interest. The aim is survival for the Millers this season and they are likely to be able to give Wing a regular starting position.

Wing was born in Newton Aycliffe in the North East and started out as a youngster playing for local sides Seaham Red Star and Shildon. He was snapped up by Boro in June 2017 and made his debut for them in a League Cup fixture against Scunthorpe United at the Riverside.

He was loaned out to League Two side Yeovil Town in January and enjoyed his spell there in the latter half of last season. Could Wing spend the rest of this campaign out on loan again?
