Middlesbrough dismiss Woodgate return to Real

Middlesbrough have dismissed suggestions that Jonathan Woodgate could return to Real Madrid next month.

Claims that Real boss Fabio Capello could take the 26-year-old England international back to the Bernabeu Stadium during the transfer window caused consternation on Teesside.

However, a club spokesman was quick to refute them.

He said: 'There is simply no issue. Jonathan will remain on loan with us until the end of the season.'

Woodgate arrived at his hometown club in August on a season's loan after Boro had secured an option to make the switch permanent at the end of the campaign if all parties agreed.

The former Leeds and Newcastle stopper has been in fine form, and has appeared in 13 of the 15 games the club has played since clinching his signature.

He missed Monday night's 2-1 Barclays Premiership defeat at Fulham with an ankle problem, but is expected to return for the must-win clash with Charlton on Saturday.
