Southgate is open to offers

20 Dec 2008 - 13:33:26

Middlesbrough manager Gareth Southgate has admitted he could be tempted to sell one of his star players in January should he receive an "exceptional offer".

Boro's England winger Stewart Downing continues to be linked with a move away from the Riverside Stadium despite recently pledging his future to the club with a new long-term contract.

Tottenham and Everton are just two of the clubs believed to been keen on the left-sided midfielder and Southgate has conceded a large offer could tempt him to part company with any of his leading players.

"I would love to say X, Y and Z are untouchable, but I can't," he said.

"I have got to be honest and say that certain players would be sold.

"They would have to be exceptional offers, but there are certain clubs with exceptional money.

"Still, we will fight to keep our best players."
