Spurs to battle Villa for Downing


Stewart Downing - Header

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR face competition from Aston Villa to sign Middlesbrough winger Stewart Downing.

Boro value Downing at £12million, despite their relegation to the Championship.  The England international is still recovering from surgery on his foot which he injured in May, and was told by a specialist that he could be back as early as October.

Spurs have been trying to sign the 24-year-old since 2006, but may have to sell before they can make a formal offer for Downing.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. not byy him, he is like bentley, and he have a injury, that not gonna be good againg.
    we need fast player like lennon, we need a A. YOUNG, maybe nani…

  2. mixed opinions over downing, think there is better out there we can buy if we try (shame bout joe cole) but if nobody else is in the frame close to season opening then might be worth a gamble. Moderic is great but sometime we lose the balance when he cuts inside
