Villa Ready To Unveil Downing!

Last updated : 15 November 2009 By Boro Mad

Downing returned to full training earlier this week and Villa report he is on course for a complete recovery from his fractured foot.

Villa paid £10 million, rising to a possible £12 million with add ons, for Downing during the close season.

James Milner: “It is great to have Stewart nearly fit.

“He is a top player. He will prove to be a great signing for us, another good addition.

“He has started training again. He has been out for a while so it will take him a few games to get that fitness back but he has worked very hard to get where he is.

“It wasn’t a nice injury. It was a tough injury to get back from but he has worked very hard and it will be great to have him back and another great addition to the squad.”
