Reading midfielder Lewis Wing has declared that he will remain at the club despite many fan fears of an exit following his successful debut season.

The 28-year-old joined from Wycombe Wanderers last summer and has enjoyed his best form in front of goal of his career, scoring nine goals and grabbing eight assists in League One.

His free-kick at Burton Albion on Saturday, his second direct free-kick goal of the month, gave the Royals hope but ultimately they went down 3-2 to the Brewers in the final away match of the campaign.

Many supporters have spoken of their fear that the clubs will be circling for the fan favourite over the summer following his standout campaign, but Wing has cooled any nerves by publicly stating his desire to remain in Berkshire.

"I signed a three-year contract so I’ll be here next year," the North-East native confirmed at the Pirelli Stadium.

It is not just the former Middlesbrough and Rotherham United star who has become popular with supporters this season, with Wing's partner Yazmine Delarose now a social media star after she spoke out against owner Dai Yongge on social media.

She has since appeared on the Elm Park Royals podcast stating her desire to contribute to a family feel in the club.

Discussing the future on BBC Berkshire, Wing added: "I think my missus is happy, isn’t she? I think what she did was good- it got the word out at the right time. Now she’s picked up a fan page so I don’t hear the end of it.

"Me and my missus have a really good relationship so I’ll back her in what she wants to do and she backs me in what I want to do. She really wants to make it a family feel, which I feel it has. The fans and players are all as one now which is fantastic to see."
