Club Career

Club(s) Began at Marton FC, before becoming a Middlesbrough FC trainee at their famed academy, before signing professionally on 6 September 2001. Downing was loaned to Sunderland AFC on 29 October 2003, being recalled during an injury crisis, after seven league appearances and three goals.  Following the Teesside club's relegation, and 181 league appearances, scoring seventeen times, Downing joined Aston Villa FC on 16 July 2009 for £12 million.  After 63 league appearances and nine goals, Liverpool chased for Downing's signature, and it was eventually achieved, on 13 July 2011, for an undisclosed fee, believed to be £20 million. He made 65 Premier League appearances, scoring three times. On 13 August 2013, Downing joined West Ham United FC and played 69 Premier League matches, scoring seven. He rejoined Middlesbrough FC on 16 July 2015 for a £7 million transfer fee. He made 153 league appearances, scoring nine goals, up until he joined Blackburn Rovers FC on 21 June 2019, after being told his contract would not be renewed. He had turned down Sheffield Wednesday FC and Sunderland AFC.
