Sheffield Wednesday are reportedly interested in signing Middlesbrough midfielder Lewis Wing this summer as Darren Moore eyes up reinforcements to his squad.
The Lowdown: Sheff Wed plan for life in League One
The Owls were relegated from the Championship last season in what proved to be a dismal campaign at Hillsborough both on and off the pitch.
Moore now has the task of masterminding promotion from League One in 2021/22, but that could be a struggle without new signings coming in to bolster their ranks.
The Wednesday manager is yet to make an addition to his squad over the summer, but if a fresh report is to believed, that could be about to change.
Will Sheffield Wednesday earn promotion?
The Latest: Owls keen on signing Wing
He famously scored a wonderful volley at Cardiff City on the final day of the campaign, one which so nearly managed to keep the Millers in the division.
The Verdict: Potential shrewd acquisition
Wing could be exactly what Wednesday need going into life in League One, possessing quality on the ball – four goals and two assists in the Championship last season – and also a fighting spirit.
Rotherham boss Paul Warne has claimed that football ‘means so much to him’ and has described him as ‘great’, with that level of dedication needed at Hillsborough if Wednesday are to make an immediate return to the second tier.
If a deal for the 26-year-old manages to be completed, it could be a shrewd move by Moore.
