Brighton, Bournemouth and Southampton are all showing an interest in signing Middlesbrough midfielder Lewis Wing, TEAMtalk understands.

The 24-year-old was playing non-league football with Seaham Red Star and Shildon AFC prior to Boro signing him in the summer of 2017.

Since then, Wing has emerged as a key player for the club having scored chipped in with nine goals in 65 games and his performances have attracted interest from the Premier League.

A club insider has told TEAMtalk that south-coast trio Bournemouth, Southampton and Brighton are all considering a summer bid.

Boro would be loathed to losing Wing but would be hard-pushed not to accept if a sizeable offer arrived at the end of the season.

After joining in the summer of 2017, Wing played for Boro’s reserve side in the Premier League 2 and scored five goals while assisting four others in 11 appearances.

Wing was then sent on loan to Yeovil Town in January 2018 before returning to the north east at the end of the campaign.

The midfielder stepped up to Boro’s first team last season and chipped in with three goals and three assists in the Championship, as well as goal contributions in the FA Cup and Carabao Cup.

This term, Wing has increased his league goal tally to six in 30 games so far.
