Since his arrival form Aston Villa sixteen months ago, Liverpool winger Stewart Downing failed to hold down a regular starting place and it has now emerged that he could be on his way out in January.
Downing is not part of manager Brendan Rodgers’ first-team plans, and the Kop boss wants to get the £70,000-a-week winger off the wage bill to free up some cash for new signings
They will either have to sell the England international for a knockdown fee or farm him out on loan, as they have in sending Andy Carroll to West Ham for the season.
The 28-year-old has been a disappointment since Kenny Dalglish signed him in July 2011 and has not managed a single Premier League goal in 40 appearances. (Daily Mirror)
The Englishman’s left foot can put in a great ball at times and many believed that his move to Liverpool was great for both him and the club, so it was a surprise to many that he just couldn’t fulfill te potential he has at such a big club like the Merseysiders and it now seems like his time is up, but will there be many complaints if he leaves? I very much doubt it.
