Boro Reject Downing’s Transfer Request

stewart-downing5Middlesbrough rejected winger Stewart Downing’s transfer request, submitted to the club this morning.

“We received a transfer request from Stewart this morning,” chief executive Keith Lamb said.  “It was considered before being rejected.”

Downing cited the club’s league position as a reason for the request.  They have only 20 points form 17 matches, out of the relegation zone on goal difference.  Unfortunately for Downing, that’s why Middlesbrough can’t let him leave.

Downing, 24, was a graduate of Middlesbrough’s academy.  He’s made 191 appearances for the club over seven seasons.

Middlesbrough allegedly rejected Tottenham’s European value bid of £6m for Downing last week.  It will require closer to the young English value of £15m for the Boro to consider a sale.
