Middlesbrough confirmed they have received and rejected a transfer request from England winger Stewart Downing.

The 24-year submitted a written transfer request first thing Monday morning in the wake of an improved offer from long-time suitors Tottenham.

Chief executive Keith Lamb said: "We received a written transfer request from Stewart on Monday morning. It was considered before being rejected."

He added: "Prior to receiving the transfer request, we received an improved offer for Stewart from Tottenham.

"We immediately rejected this offer and informed Tottenham that Stewart Downing is not for sale and any further interest they have in the player will not be entertained."
