Boro warn Spurs off Downing bid
Middlesbrough winger Stewart Downing
Downing ended the season in fabulous form for Boro
Middlesbrough have told Tottenham not to bother preparing another offer for England winger Stewart Downing.

Spurs had a 6m bid for the 21-year-old rejected last summer and reports suggest the White Hart Lane outfit are still keen to sign Downing.

But Boro chief executive Keith Lamb has warned Spurs off the World Cup hopeful: "Stewart is not for sale. We are building a team not dismantling one.

"We have had no contact about him and we don't expect or want any."

Downing will play on the left of midfield for the England B side against Belarus at Reading on Thursday.

He is part of Sven-Goran Eriksson's 23-man squad that will travel to Germany for the World Cup finals.
