Newcastle leading Downing chase

Newcastle United are leading the race to sign West Ham United’s Stewart Downing, according to the Metro.

The 30 year old has racked up thirty-seven appearances in all competitions in each of his two seasons with the Hammers, having signed from Liverpool in the summer of 2013.

Predominantly a winger, the England international was deployed in more advanced role last season, helping himself to six goals as the East London club secured a twelfth place finish.

Downing began his career with Middlesbrough, for whom he played over two hundred and thirty times before moving to Aston Villa, then onto Anfield in 2011.

In total, he has made three hundred and seventy-seven Premier League appearances while he has thirty-five caps for his country, and was part of England’s squads for both the 2006 World Cup and the 2012 European Championships.

His last outing for Roy Hodgson’s side came in a 3-1 friendly victory over Scotland back in November.

Sunderland, who had Downing on loan twelve years ago, are also monitoring the situation.
