Stoke City Make Move For Tottenham Defender

White Hart Lane veteran wanted at the Britannia Stadium.

Stoke City have offered Tottenham Hotspur free-agent Jonathan Woodgate a contract to keep him in the Premier League.

The 31-year-old’s contract at Spurs expired last month and he refused to sign a pay-as-you-play deal to keep him in north London.

The England international will hold talks with Stoke boss Tony Pulis this week to thrash out personal terms, according to the Daily Mirror.

Woodgate has suffered from injury all throughout his career and has played only four times for Tottenham in the last two years.

But Pulis is ready to take a gamble on the Middlesbrough-born defender as he seeks to add more quality to his squad.

Leeds United are the only other club to take an interest in Woodgate and would love to take him back to where he started his career.

Stoke can offer Woodgate better personal terms than Leeds and satisfy his desire to carry on playing in the top flight.

Pulis is also reported to be closing in on a double swoop for Birmingham City pair Cameron Jerome and Scott Dann.

But Stoke face competition for Dann’s signature from both Liverpool and Arsenal, who are both in the market for a central defender.
