Liverpool target Downing to slap in Villa transfer demand

Stewart Downing is ready to quit Aston Villa.

The Daily Star says Villa are braced for a transfer request from want-away England star Downing.

But Aston Villa will still be prepared to play hardball with Liverpool in their attempt to try and prise the 26-year-old star away.

Downing still has two years of his contract to run and while Villa will reluctantly allow him to leave, they will hold out for their £20m valuation.

If Kop boss Kenny Dalglish refuses to sanction a move for that figure then the Midlands club will squeeze another year out of Downing before being pushed into a deal next summer.
