    downing staying or going

    In recent months when Yakubu and Viduka were the subject of transfer speculation, Southgate said (paraphrase)" When a player decides he wants to go there's not much you can do about it. It's best to let him". He said similar about Woodgate who repaid the club and Southgate's earlier faith in him by saying that now he is at Spurs he is at a club with ambition and with a 'proper manager'.
    My point is given the above why is Boro not waving Goodbye to Downing, collecting £10m or £11m in the process.
