West Ham midfielder Stewart Downing started in place of Joe Cole in today's game at Newcastle.
After months of "will he/won't he", Stewart Downing completed a transfer to West Ham United for around 5 million pounds.
London club West Ham United are pursuing a £6m deal for Liverpool winger Steward Downing.
Downing is quoted by LiverpoolFC.tv as saying, "I'm here to stay. I'm enjoying it, especially last season when I got a good run in the team. Hopefully that will continue, and I need to work hard."
Stewart Downing has been linked to West Ham, but West Ham coach Neil McDonald dismissed it as "all paper talk at the moment".
Pending a medical, Liverpool have agreed to a 8-million pound move for Celta Vigo for forward Iago Aspas.
