Despite his chronic injury problems Jonathan Woodgate has earned praise from his manager Harry Redknapp, who has hinted that a new contract deal for the centre back may be on the table in the summer.
Woodgate made a long awaited return from injury in the San Siro last week, coming on as a 59th minute substitute but picked up yet another groin problem as he played his part in Spurs’ win.
“Hopefully he will get a deal,” Harry said. “I want him to come back fit. He’s a great player.
“I’d love to see him get his career back on track because when I came here two years ago he was one of the first names on the sheet, a different class. He’s one of the best centre-halves around.”
We all hope he comes back fit and in form, but even if he returns before the end of the season, has he done enough to earn a new deal?
