Middlesbrough facing mass exodus of senior players

Middlesbrough face a mass exodus at the end of the season.

The Daily Mail says Stewart Downing, Tuncay, Afonso Alves and Robert Huth will lead the exodus from Middlesbrough if the club are relegated at West Ham on Sunday.

Liverpool are favourites to sign Downing, valued at around £10million, although Tottenham and Aston Villa will also join the fight.

Turkey captain Tuncay has attracted interest from Chelsea but former club Fenerbahce want him, too.

Brazil striker Alves will spend the summer recovering from a broken metatarsal but that is unlikely to put off Benfica, while Stoke are keen on Huth and had a £5m offer for the defender rejected in January.
