Downing set for West Ham medical

Liverpool winger Stewart Downing is set to undergo a medical at West Ham after the Londoners agreed to sign him for a fee of around £5 million.

Hammers manager Sam Allardyce has been pursuing the 29-year-old England international winger for much of the summer.

And although Downing was cool on the idea of a move to Upton Park when Allardyce first made an approach last month, sources have told ESPN the former Aston Villa man appears to have acknowledged that future first-team chances at Anfield will be limited.

 

If Downing completes a switch to Upton Park, he will be reunited with former Anfield team-mate Andy Carroll, who completed a permanent move to Upton Park -- following a season’s loan -- earlier this summer.

His departure would see Liverpool make a significant financial loss on a player Kenny Dalglish signed from Villa for £20 million in summer 2011.

Downing failed to either score or provide an assist in the Premier League during his first season at Anfield and had a tough start to his second campaign on Merseyside after Brendan Rodgers replaced Dalglish as manager.

The winger frequently found himself playing out of position at left-back, and also had his attitude questioned publicly by Rodgers in the early weeks of the season.

He was linked with a November loan move to Championship side Middlesbrough -- his first club -- and was told by Rodgers he was free to leave. But he responded with improved displays and won back a regular place on the wing over the second half of the campaign.
