Middlesbrough's Downing furious with Spurs coach Ramos
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."
