Middlesbrough winger Stewart Downing looks set to miss out on a dream move to Anfield after suffering a long-term injury against Aston Villa at the weekend.

The Englishman will have an operation on Friday on the break and will hope to be fit in time for the new season – but the layoff could see Rafael Benitez firmly switch his attentions to David Silva instead.

Downing could potentially miss up to six months of action and Rafael Benitez is unlikely to spend £12m on him when he needs to get his team off to a flying start to beat Manchester United to next season’s title.
