Lamb confident of new Downing deal

Published Add your comment

Middlesbrough chief executive Keith Lamb has revealed that Stewart Downing´s contract wrangle could be resolved within six weeks.

The 23-year-old´s future with his home town club came under the spotlight during the January transfer window amid a row between his agent Ian Elliott and chairman Steve Gibson after he had rejected Boro´s initial offer to extend his current deal.

But speaking at a BBC Radio Tees fans´ forum, Lamb said: "I am very confident that we will reach agreement sooner rather than later."
