Spurs Losing Interest In Downing?

Last updated : 27 June 2009 By Boro Mad

Downing has been avidly pursued by Spurs, who tabled their latest bid for him in January, for several years.

But although we heard last week Harry Redknapp was willing to make an offer ... despite the serious injury ... Boro have not received any confirmation that the London side are still interested.

Chairman Steve Gibson persuaded the 24-year-old to stay then, but has promised him he can leave at the right price if a big club comes in for him.

However, the operation he underwent to repair a foot injury within days of the end of last season could sideline him for up to six months in total, and that may mean potential buyers will wait until the winter transfer window to make their move.
