Woodgate left stumped

England centre-back Jonathan Woodgate insists he has no idea whether his long-term future lies at Middlesbrough, where he is currently on a season-long loan. Reports earlier in the week suggested that the 27-year-old had agreed a deal to seal his exit from Real Madrid, but Woodgate insists that is not the case. He commented: "I've got a contract with Madrid and all this stuff comes out and I haven't got a clue what's happening. "I've got a contract at Madrid and I'll see what happens at the end of the season and see where I go in the summer. "They agreed a fee with Middlesbrough at the start of the season, but then it all came out saying I was going. I've not been transferred. I'm a Real Madrid player and I'm on loan at Middlesbrough. "We will see what happens at the end of the season and I will take a decision then." Woodgate joined Real for £13.4million from Newcastle United in the summer of 2004, but had been limited to a mere ten starts before heading to the Riverside.
