Downing set for Boro exit over summer

Middlesbrough, England (Sports Network) – Middlesbrough manager Gareth Southgate has dropped a major hint that England winger Stewart Downing will be allowed to leave the club in the summer.

The 24-year-old is on the wish list of Tottenham, but Boro are adamant that Downing will not be sold this month, with the club facing a possible relegation battle.

Southgate told the Evening Gazette: “I sat with Stewart and we had a long chat.

“We have just said ‘there is nothing going to happen now and what happens in the future happens in the future’.

“None of us can look that far forward. We have got a job to do here and now.

“Stewart asked about the possibility of a move. He knows we’ve had bids from Tottenham because that’s the way they work. I understand Stewart’s situation and he understands ours.”
