Yakubu tells Middlesbrough pals he wants to stay

Yakubu Aiyegbeni wants to stay at Middlesbrough, says teammate Stewart Downing.

The England winger told Sky Sports: "I know there has been a lot of speculation. It's been happening every year he's been here.

"He has just got used to it. He has told the lads he wants to be here, which is all we need to hear.

"He's been sharp in pre-season and has come back fresher. We hope he will get a lot of goals again this season."
