Stewart Downing has vowed to stay and fight for his place at Liverpool following rumours that he could be sold to West Ham United, the Metro understands.
The 28 year old has made ninety-one appearances for Liverpool since signing from Aston Villa for £20m two years ago, but was told by manager Brendan Rodgers last November that he was free to find a new club.
However, the England international went on to play in every domestic game from the 3-1 defeat to Villa on December 15th to the end of the season, a run in which he scored his first league goals for the club.
Downing has revealed that Reds manager Brendan Rodgers has said he is happy to let him stay and fight for his place with the club, who, in Spanish duo Iago Aspas and Luis Alberto, have signed two players who are also comfortable playing on the right of a front line.
