JONATHAN WOODGATE has the chance to prove his career is back on track – in Wolves’ relegation battle.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has given his blessing for the injury-jinxed defender to move to Molineux on loan until the end of the season.

Woodgate, 30, is on his way back after a long-standing groin injury – but is way down the pecking order at Tottenham.

Redknapp said: “I’m happy for him to go if he wants. It’s really up to him.

“Jonathan’s played a couple of games for the reserves and in training games – but now we really need to see him move up a gear.

“He definitely needs to get some proper first-team games under his belt.”

Newcastle have also been tracking Woody but Wolves have firmed up their interest with an approach.

Woodgate had surgery in Australia to cure the injury which has kept him out since November 2009 – but William Gallas, Michael Dawson, Ledley King and Younes Kaboul are all ahead of him in the queue for a first-team spot.


Jonathan Woodgate has been desperately unlucky with injuries throughout his career, but at the age of 30 still feels that he can play at the highest level.

All likelihood suggests that his bid to re-establish himself will come at Wolverhampton Wanderers, though the player would certainly listen to a Newcastle United offer if it came.

After all, he did at play at St James’ Park earlier just a few years ago.

Wolves could certainly use the experience of the Tottenham Hotspur centre back in their relegation battle, and with Harry Redknapp agreeing to let him leave it appears as if it is down to the player to decide.
