Woodgate doesn't know if Real want him back

MADRID, Dec 12 (Reuters) - Middlesbrough defender Jonathan Woodgate is unsure whether Real Madrid will want him back when his one-year loan spell in the Premier League ends.

The centre back returned to his hometown club in August after being plagued by injuries in his two-year spell with the nine-times European champions.

The English side have an option to turn the loan move into a permanent one.

'Honestly, I don't know what will happen. All I want at the moment is to play lots of games here and help Middlesbrough earn a place in Europe,' Woodgate told sports daily AS on Tuesday.

'At the end of the season we'll have to wait and see. I am extremely happy here and I don't know if Real want me to return. My future isn't in my hands.

'I have only spoken with Real's physiotherapists, with their doctor and David Beckham. I suppose it is normal no one else calls me.'

The 26-year-old only played 14 competitive games with Real after joining from Newcastle United for $25 million in August 2004.

But he has avoided serious injury with Middlesbrough and established himself as a first team regular making 13 league appearances so far this season.

'I am still a little way off being in perfect condition. But I feel better day by day,' he added.

'I have a personalised training plan and every day arrive an hour before everyone else, and leave two hours after everyone. I am working hard to be in top shape as soon as possible.'

Woodgate has a contract with Real until 2008.
