Tottenham hope to rekindle a bid for Stewart Downing at the end of the season, which would be aided if Boro are relegated.
Spurs are also likely to return to Sunderland with a bid for Kenwyne Jones. Harry Redknapp hopes the Black Cats’ Premier League survival will now mean they are more open to selling than they were in January. (Inthenews.co.uk)
The Stewart Downing saga has been once again reignited with a £15 million transfer to Spurs from Middlesbrough looking all but certain in the summer, with Sunderland apparently willing to dispense with Kenwyne Jones after rejecting the same price from chairman Daniel Levy. (eurosport.yahoo)
It’s not the first time these two have appeared on the Spurs rumour radar and as we draw towards the end of the season these will no doubt be joined by another 10-20 other names as potential signings. I don’t see that either of these two offer anything to the White Hart Lane outfit. Downing is good on his day but nothing special and sure as hell not worth the amount Gareth Southgate appears to want for the wideman and as for Kenwyne Jones i have to say i find him to be very overrated and not exactly prolific. Why would Harry want yet another striker? Do any Tottenham fans like the idea of signing either of these Premier League men?
