Jonathan Woodgate’s injury plagued Spurs career looks to be finally over with reports that he has been released by the club. Woody made just one appearance last season – as a substitute in the San Siro where he picked up another injury that seemed to typify his time at White Hart Lane.
There is talk however that his career may be offered a lifeline by former club Leeds who are lining him up for a return. Leeds boss Simon Grayson is obviously aware of the risk but maybe a playing/coaching role would suit all parties.
As far as Spurs are concerned, fans will recall the times when Woody and King played together and will wonder what might have been. Of course, the abiding memory of Woodgate’s spell at the club came with his winner at Wembley in 2008 and for that alone, he’ll always have a part of Tottenham history to take with him.
