The England international looks set to leave The Riverside, after Boro decided it was time to part company with one of their most prized assets.

The Teesside-born ace had been in talks to prolong his current contract which has over two-years to run - but he is now set to leave during the current transfer window.

Tottenham have tracked Downing for a number of seasons and are again now in prime position to finally get their man, according to Skysports.com.

However, Everton and Portsmouth - who have also made enquires for him in recent months - are ready to compete for his signature.
