Aston Villa accept Liverpool bid of £20million for Downing Empty Aston Villa accept Liverpool bid of £20million for Downing

Liverpool have revealed that they have had a £20million bid for England winger Stewart Downing accepted by Aston Villa.

The Reds have been chasing the tricky wideman for some time, with bids of £12.5million and £15million having been knocked back.

Arsenal then entered the race, with it understood that Arsene Wenger tabled a big-money offer for the former Middlesbrough man.

Downing has, however, made it clear that he would prefer to make a move to Anfield.

He may be about to get his wish, with Villa having granted Liverpool permission to speak with the 26-year-old.


A statement released on the Reds' official website read: "Liverpool FC tonight announced they had agreed a fee with Aston Villa for the transfer of Stewart Downing.


"Liverpool have now been granted permission to discuss personal terms with the player and arrange a medical.

Kenny Dalglish has already added Jordan Henderson and Charlie Adam to his midfield ranks this summer, but is closing on another creative talent.

Villa, meanwhile, are set to see both of their England international wingers head for the exits in the same summer.

Ashley Young has already completed a £16million move to Manchester United.

Mata would have been nice, very low possibility of him leaving this summer though and I doubt we could get him for the same price we paid for Downing. We are mainly buying local players only time will tell if this is a good thing or not.

i'm always up to defend my club's policy, but this time, even i must admit that 20mil£ (if thats the right number) is too much........


but that doesnt change the fact the hes a great player with a style we've been missing for too long and he will certainly improve us.

"Downing completed more crosses in open play - 135 - than any other player in the Premier League last season. No other player has beaten that amount for any of the last three campaigns."

Ridiculous amount of money, but if it brings them success i doubt they will really care.

Price's only really come up when said player's flop, i fully expect Henderson to do so Twisted Evil

They've already got Marc Albrighton, so that's a start. I really do rate that guy.

But I do doubt they can get a winger of Young's or even Downing's quality, even with £40,000,000.

Amazing how far Villa are falling though. At one point they were challenging for a Champions League spot with the likes of Young, Barry and Milner and now they've fallen into mid-table, have lost Young, Downing, Barry and Milner and have Alex McLeish as their manager.

N'Zogbia has been heavily linked, Albrighton and N'Zogbia has a lot of potential.
