Reports this morning are suggesting that Liverpool winger, Stewart Downing, is about to join West Ham United.
The fee is believed to be around £5million and the 29-year-old is understood to be under-going a medical in London today.
Having paid £20million to sign Downing from Aston Villa, Liverpool have definitely lost out in financial terms.
Liverpool also lost out financially when they sold fellow flop, Andy Carroll, to West Ham.
Just like Carroll, Downing hasn’t found his true form during his time at Liverpool and was told by manager, Brendan Rodgers, that he was surplus to requirements towards the end of last season.
It will be interesting to see how Downing performs at West Ham. The Hammers will be hoping that it is the Stuart Downing of old, rather then his Liverpool days.
The Hammers got the best out of Andy Carroll. They will be hoping that Downing could be a great provider for the tall striker.
