Southgate to fight for Downing

Published Add your comment

Middlesbrough manager Gareth Southgate has reiterated his determination to hold on to England winger Stewart Downing.

Reports have suggested that Tottenham are prepared to pay £10million for the 23-year-old Teesside-born player, but Southgate insists there have been no bids received in the current transfer window.

"I was very interested to see Stewart´s agent on TV telling us what may or may not happen. I don´t think it´s been very helpful. But that´s football. Everybody wants to have their say publicly," said Southgate.
