Boro Could Rue Not Selling Downing When Spurs Made The Offer!

Last updated : 13 June 2009 By Boro Mad
Boro's scouting team is currently assessing various options with no firm approaches having yet been made.

Tuncay has indicated he wants to stay in England, but that he wants to play in the Premier League, while any hopes of cashing in on England winger Downing in the short-term were dashed by the foot injury which is set to sideline him for between four and six months.

Downing, the subject of a failed £15million bid from Tottenham in January, has been told he can leave if a club comes in with the right offer, although that may not now happen until the new year.

But no club is going to hand over £15m until he proves he still has what it takes, and we hear Spurs are cooling on the idea of a deal.

Also, Boro are making it clear they are DESPERATE to sell him ... unlike last January when Spurs were desperate to BUY him!
