Woody Vieira among released
Veteran pair Jonathan Woodgate and Patrick Vieira are on a list of 123 footballers released by Premier League clubs this summer. Woodgate will now have to decide whether he retires from football after making just 49 Premier League appearances in three and a half years at Tottenham due to a succession of injuries.
