Downing handed transfer request

Post  Ariff Ahmad on Mon Jan 05, 2009 3:50 pm

Middlesbrough boss Gareth Southgate has hit out at the transfer window as he braces himself for the transfer request of winger Stewart Downing.It is understood the 24-year-old will ask to leave the Riverside Stadium on Monday following strong interest from Tottenham. However, Downing's decision to submit a transfer request could force their hand with Southgate admitting there is no point hanging on to players who do not want to be there.

Boro value Downing at closer to the £15million mark but it remains to be seen whether or not Spurs, who have been admirers for several years, are prepared to go to anywhere near what would be a record transfer fee received by the Teessiders.


No point to keep unhappy player in team.it will effect the player morale and atmosphere.cash him asap and bring in player who love to play with middlesbrough.another tukish player maybe?...

couple player in my mind if downing departure.

Arda Turan,Stephen hunt,nemanja matic,

come boro.NO DOWNING NO CRY!

Well said Arif, i agree, also if we get a good price we can strengthen our midfield as i think we already have a few players who can play wide left. We will miss him if he goes Sad but nobody is indispensible. Huddlestone would be a good man to get.
Happy New Year.
