Liverpool winger Stewart Downing insists he wants to stay at Anfield.

Downing, who is wanted by both Sunderland and hometown club Middlesbrough, admits he happy to battle for his place.

"You can get paid up and go somewhere else but I worked hard to get to Liverpool. Good lads, great club - we have a chance of the top four if we keep playing the way we are," he said.

"Things are coming together so if you leave all that, where do you go? Another top-four team? Brilliant, but if not you're basically playing for nothing and I want to win things."
