Have Spurs Made A Third Bid? Boro Say No!

Last updated : 07 January 2009 By Boro Mad
Middlesbrough have reiterated their stance that the winger will not be sold at any price, but Redknapp still has the London media doing his dirty work for him!

It's as though Redknapp has a hot-line to Fleet Street ... or is it Wapping now?

Boro chief executive Keith Lamb said: "We again reiterate that no senior players will be leaving this football club during January. That is the end of the matter.

"Any ongoing media speculation is therefore meaningless and we will not continue to respond to it.

"We have NOT had another bid."

Obviously Downing is caught in a crossfire, but that is probably the way he wants it.

He has slapped in a transfer request, and it's up to Boro and Spurs to fight it out.

But Lamb is not just fighting Spurs ... and a player revolt ... but the London media too!

The media parasites LOVE to cause trouble north of Watford, and they have certainly got their claws in this story.
