BLACKBURN are reportedly close to finally the capture of Stewart Downing on a free transfer from Middlesbrough.

The former England international, 35 next month, is set to leave his hometown club for a second time.

And Lancashire Live claim he is on course to become Tony Mowbray’s signing of the summer at Ewood Park.

Downing, who played for Aston Villa, Liverpool and West Ham in the Premier League, had a host of other clubs interested in his services.

He had offers from the MLS, Steve Bruce’s Sheffield Wednesday and Boro’s North East rivals Sunderland after talks over an extension at The Riverside broke down.

But it now appears odds-on the Teessider will reject those advances to link-up with ex-Boro boss Mowbray at Blackburn.

And his arrival will provide a big boost to the Rovers wide areas following Craig Conway’s departure.

The Scottish international rejected a new deal after five years at Ewood.

That left Mowbray in desperate need of wing reinforcements.

But the highly-experienced Downing will help plug the gap left by Conway.
