Background:
Joined Wycombe Wanderers on 31st January 2022 on a 6 month contract following his release from then Championship side, Middlesbrough. The move for the 26-year-old midfielder came as a surprise because he had previously been on a season long loan to fellow League One side, Sheffield Wednesday - making 24 appearances for The Owls.

Wing had been with Middlesbrough for close to five years prior to his move to Wycombe. He had been signed by Boro following time playing non-League football in the North-East, culminating in scoring 37 goals in one season for Shildon in the Northern League. It was that scoring record that attracted the attention of Boro, who signed the then 22-year-old on an initial one-year deal in June 2017. He would go on to make his First Team debut during the 2017/18 season before taking in a loan spell with Yeovil Town. The following season, Wing became a regular in the Boro side - earning a contract extension until June 2022. However, he would fall out of favour at The Riverside and subsequetly loaned to Rotherham United (in the season they were relegated, along with Wycombe, from the Championship), followed by a loan move to Sheffield Wednesday at the start of the 2021/22 campaign.

Commenting at the time of his move to Wycombe, Manager Gareth Ainsworth said: "He's a player I've admired for a long time. He's got real Championship pedigree and once he became available late in the window, I knew I wanted to bring him to the club. We always remain patient to bring in the right players for the right deal and we believe this is a real coup for us. He's a special talent who gives us a big goal threat from midfield and I'm looking forward to seeing him in action."

On 10th May 2023, the Club confirmed that Wing would be 'seeking pastures new' having seemingly turned down the option of a contract extension with Wycombe Wanderers. His 40 yard goal at Portsmouth on the final day of the 2022/23 season, turned out to be his final game too for Wycombe Wanderers. The goal was his 9th of the season, leaving him as joint top scorer of the season for Wanderers - along side Anis Mehmeti (who had departed to Bristol City in the January 2023 transfer window).

In a message on his Instragram account on the day of his departure from Wycombe, he said: "This is a hard one to take as this is the club where I've learnt and grown the most as a player and not forgetting some great friendships I've made along the way. I didn't really know what to expect when I first joined [Wycombe Wanderers], as it was so different to the previous clubs I'd played at or know, but one thing I can say, is that it really does feel like a family over the past 18 months, and I just wanted to thank each and everyone of you, from the staff to the supporters, and everyone inbetween. Chairboys."
