SPURS are closing in on a transfer window swoop for Middlesbrough ace Stewart Downing.
The England winger, 24, is well aware of Harry Redknapp’s interest and would welcome a switch to North London.
Redknapp wanted him at his old club Portsmouth and will make a move again next month.
But Spurs and Boro are haggling over the price and over which players will be part of the deal.
Boro want at least £15million for Downing, who only signed a new five-year contract last February, and boss Gareth Southgate is keen on Spurs’ Gareth Bale.
Tottenham chief Redknapp, though, wants to keep Welsh wing-back Bale despite his difficult start to this season. England Under-21 midfielder Jamie O’Hara could be used as a makeweight instead. (News of the World)

Will Harry really fork out such a fee for the Boro man? Well apparently this deal is at an advanced stage with only the fee a sticking point. One thing is for certain, surely Redknapp will not give Bale away in any swap deal, O’Hara I could just about understand, but Gareth is a player with huge potential who is in my view a star of the future. Do Spurs fans really think that Downing will join the club and if so are they happy with the move or would it be a colossal waste of money?
