Lewis Wing has penned a new deal which will keep him at Middlesbrough until 2022.
The 23-year-old has impressed in his breakout season — and started as one of Boro’s main midfield men at the beginning of the campaign.
Since his last league appearance against Bristol City in August, Wing has found himself in and around the matchday squad.
But the former Shildon man has nonetheless impressed his manager Tony Pulis – who has rewarded him with a new long-term deal.
“It is my dream, and it’s coming true at the moment,” Wing told Boro’s website.
“It’s been a mad year, and I’m happy to put pen to paper and get on with things.
“I think I’ve got a lot to improve on still, but at the start of the season I couldn’t have asked for much more.
“I think the gaffer likes how hungry I am and I give my all in everything I do.
“Hopefully I can keep on building on that, digging away and nail down a place in the First Team.”
