Liverpool offer Stewart Downing to Newcastle United

Clive Brunskill

Reports have surfaced that Liverpool have offered Newcastle United 29-year old English winger Stewart Downing at a discounted rate.

Newcastle United have reportedly been told they can sign Liverpool winger Stewart Downing for a mere £5 million, which would put his current club at a massive loss from the £20 million they spent to bring him in from Aston Villa two years ago.

The English winger is 29-years old, which puts him outside of the typical signing for the Toon, but at a £5 million tag he might be worth the money as the Magpies could use help at the winger position.

The Toon have also been linked to Tom Ince, who would seem to cost just £3 million more than Downing, but is also just 21 years old. Downing's wages are also likely to be high, but it appears Liverpool want him gone at a discount rate and Downing wants to continue getting first team minutes.

He played in the team's first three friendlies but has been an unused substitute in their last two friendlies.
