The Irons received a fee of £5.25 million for Stewart Downing when selling him to Middlesbrough earlier in the week.
And they will get another £1.5 million from the Championship outfit if the club is promoted to the Premier League at any time during his five year contract.
It’ a decent deal for a 30-year-old winger despite Irons wanting £7 million and Slaven Bilic being reportedly keen to keep him at Upton Park.
It was reported that the winger told the manager that had any other club come for him he would have stayed but couldn’t resist the lure of his home town outfit.
Newcastle United, Leicester City and Sunderland were all keen but once Middlesbrough cam in it was a no brainer where he would end up.
