West Ham open Liverpool talks for Downing

West Ham United have opened talks with Liverpool for Stewart Downing.

The Daily Mail says West Ham enquired about Downing at the end of last season and felt encouraged to return.

The England winger finished the most recent campaign strongly but he has two years left on his contract and if Liverpool were to recoup half of the £20million they spent on him in July 2011, a deal could be done.
