Middlesbrough winger Stewart Downing admits he'd welcome a move to Tottenham.

The 23-year-old told Sky Sports News: "I am aware and flattered by the interest from Tottenham.

"But until Middlesbrough and Tottenham agree terms I remain a Middlesbrough player and am fully committed to helping Gareth Southgate and the team any way I can.
