Villa winger Downing wants to join pal Carroll at Liverpool

Aston Villa winger Stewart Downing is eager to clinch a move to Liverpool.

The Mirror says Downing has decided his future lies elsewhere, and he is keen to move to Anfield after being sold on the Merseyside club.

He is a friend of Andy Carroll, and wants to become part of Kenny Dalglish's revolution, but it seems there is much work to be done if he is to get his wish.

Dalglish values the player at around £10million, and given he cost that figure when he moved to Villa Park from Middlesbrough, and has only two years left on his contract.

But the Villa board see things very differently, and even though they don't yet know if Downing will figure in their new manager's plans, they have indicated any offer will have to be double that figure for them to consider it.
