M'boro Season 09/10 - Downing is Villian now

STEWART DOWNING has explained his reasons for leaving Boro after completing his move to Aston Villa this afternoon for a fee of £12m.

The England winger has signed a four-year contract at Villa Park after passing a medical and agreeing personal terms.

"Leaving Boro feels strange because I've always been at the club," he said.

"I supported them when I was young and I'll always be a Boro fan.

"But I hope the fans will understand that I'm ambitious and want to win things. This move gives me a chance of that.

"Also I definitely want to play at next year's World Cup, so that's my aim - to get back to full fitness, get back playing and get myself in the England team for the World Cup.

"I don't just want to go there to sit it out this time either. I want to be in the team. I loved the last World Cup, it was brilliant, but I want to play a bigger part this time.

"I have to be with a good Premier League side if I want to do that.

M'boro Season 09/10 - Barnes Leaves Boro

BORO have confirmed that they have parted company with Chris Barnes, the club's Head of Sports Science.

Barnes, who joined the club in 1998 under Bryan Robson's management, is the latest member of the club's backroom staff to leave since the club's relegation, following the departures of assistant manager Malcolm Crosby, Frank Nuttall and sports psychologist Michael Caulfield.

Chief Executive Keith Lamb said: "We're grateful for all the work Chris carried out for the club over the past 11 years and wish him well in his future career. We are rearranging the backroom team and handling the fitness elements in a different way as we plan for what will hopefully be just the one season in the Championship."
