Middlesbrough winger Stewart Downing is furious with Tottenham after a move to London appears to have fallen through.

The Sun says the winger was ready to follow Boro team-mate Jonathan Woodgate to White Hart Lane.

But despite the two clubs agreeing a £7million fee, boss Juande Ramos has cooled his interest in a player who was targeted by Spurs sporting director Damien Comolli when Martin Jol was in charge.

A pal of the winger said: "Stewart is annoyed that everything seems to have fallen through.

"He was up for a move but Tottenham pulled the plug and left him high and dry. His head was turned."
