Downing wants move

Published Add your comment

Middlesbrough winger Stewart Downing has handed in a written transfer request, it is understood.

Hours after Boro chairman Steve Gibson insisted the 24-year-old would not be sold in the wake of a formal approach from Tottenham, the England international took matters into his own hands by asking to leave.

Downing signed a new five-year contract at the Riverside Stadium in February last year, but has grown increasingly restless at his home town club since.
