Well now they are reporting on their website the deal may be completed today or in a couple of days.I am still very skeptical as only skysports are reporting it no one else has picked up this news.

http://www.skysports.com/story/0,19528,11095_7031402,00.html?

Sky Sports sources understand Stewart Downing would prefer to join Liverpool, despite interest from Arsenal, and the deal could be finalised on Monday.

The Aston Villa winger was on Wednesday the subject of a £15million bid from Liverpool, but the offer was immediately rejected by Villa Park owner Randy Lerner.

Arsene Wenger's Arsenal, who could lose Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas this summer, are thought to have attempted to hijack their Premier League rivals with an £18million bid.

But England winger Downing has set his mind on a move to Anfield and Liverpool are negotiating a price to buy a player who has two years remaining on his current contract.

Having already lost Ashley Young to Manchester United, new Villa manager Alex McLeish hopes the former Middlesbrough star will stay and the club are under no pressure to sell to suggest they would want a fee in the region of £20m.

Quality

It had been reported, with Arsenal demonstrating their interest, Liverpool had lined up Wigan's Charles N'Zogbia as solution to their search for creativity in wide areas.

The fact Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli and manager Kenny Dalglish have travelled to the Far East for a pre-season tour was also thought to indicate there was no imminent transfer activity.

But Sky Sports sources understand a deal for Downing could be finalised in the early stages of next week.


It has been questioned whether the soon-to-be-27-year-old Downing meets the criteria for young talent sought by Liverpool, which has already resulted in the signings of Jordan Henderson and Charlie Adam.
But Dalglish wants quality in wide areas and Downing's crossing ability is viewed as a vital factor in the short-term target to return the club to the top four of the Premier League.

When Downing joins #lfc, #avfc will match #wafc fee for NZogbia and pay him the 60k a week wages he wants - with #nufc and #safc still keen.

Sky still sticking to its stand

As we revealed Arsenal have lodged bid for Downing, but I believe he very much has his heart set on a move to Liverpool should Villa sell.

P.S.

Also Aston Villa forum ITKs saying Villa want to sell Downing to us rather than Arsenal so that we wont go for N'Zogbia.

Downing to us seems imminent as although I am not a fan of this transfer.

Mata? I predict he will stay in Valencia.

Mata was never going to leave. Also doubt we'd pay 20m for Downing. Every report has got the price wrong so far. They still claim Adam as 10 and Henderson as 20.

Hope he arrives. bounce

Double swoop for Lovren and Cissokho? cheers

So now it's the Downing saga that takes the role of (Hindi) soap opera! If, just if, we fail to sign Downing; who would be the replacement!

Let's sign Stu.

I have a feeling we'll agree a 18M + 2M (add ons) for him.

He is now entering his peak and we should get 2-3 years of good quality from him before Sterling is ready for first team football

that guy is only 16? Shocked
lol he looks so much older,
but he couldnt have cheated on his age given that he has been in France all his life so he indeed is 16.

i guess it would be a great deal: having such a youngster whos already that much developped physically at only 16...

and if we do buy him, he would be the kind of signings i would have liked to see a little more from Comolli by now.
before coming here he had a reputation for spotting unknown or unproven talents, but since now we have almost only bought etablished or overpaid british talent...

Surely he can't be 16. confused

Another Lukaku?! cheers

Also, unknown or unproven talents will come in time. At the moment we're looking to get back to the top, you can't do that with young players. They'll come in time. Thumbs up
