Middlesbrough have warned other clubs not to bother trying to sign young stars Stewart Downing and Adam Johnson.

Chief executive Keith Lamb on Tuesday issued a hands-off warning to Everton over England winger Downing, and Tottenham, who are long-term pursuers of the Boro midfielder, have also been credited with an interest in his 20-year-old understudy, Johnson, who impressed on a loan spell at Watford earlier in the season.

However, assistant boss Malcolm Crosby told the club´s official website, "They won´t be going anywhere. We want to keep them. They are two great players."
