Downing's Transfer Request Rejected

Downing's Transfer Request Rejected

Stewart Downing's written transfer request has been rejected and Boro state Gary O'Neil will not be leaving the club.

"We received a written transfer request from Stewart this morning. It was considered before being rejected," Lamb revealed.

"Prior to receiving the transfer request, we received an improved offer for Stewart from Tottenham.

"We immediately rejected this offer and informed Tottenham that Stewart Downing is not for sale and any further interest they have in the player will not be entertained."

"We have not received a transfer request from Gary but if we did receive one it would be rejected, as would any offer from another club.

We believe that this squad of players is strong enough to substantially improve our league position and we are committed to keeping the squad together.
