Downing to be allowed to leave Boro

Tottenham are ready to make a move to land the England winger. Spurs failed with their bid to sign Downing in the January transfer window.

Spurs made a £12.5million plus add-ons bid for Downing, but Boro will now demand £15million.

Aston Villa, Liverpool and Manchester City are also considering making a move for the highly rated winger.
