Tottenham Hotspur manager Juande Ramos is frantic in signing any decent and better players than the ones he has got in his squad at the moment. Spurs have been linked with a number of decent and good players both in the Premiership and outside it and now, if you are to believe Sky Sports, Spurs are chasing the Middlesbrough and England international Stewart Downing.
Downing is already a full England international and although he has two years left on his current contract with Boro, the club’s struggles in the English Premier League where they are 15th in the table and just 3 points above the dropzone has forced Middlesbrough to accede that they cannot hold onto their most prized asset anymore.
So Downing is all set to leave Boro but whether he moves to Spurs or another Premiership side is yet to be decided. But how much of an asset with he be to his new club? We all know that he has got a decent left foot and can cross the ball fairly decently. How will he progress away from the Teesside?
