Spurs rival Newcastle for Middlesbrough's Woodgate

Tottenham have joined Newcastle United in their interest for Middlesbrough defender Jonathan Woodgate.

The Times says Spurs made an approach on Tuesday for Woodgate, who becomes the third Middlesbrough player to be targeted by the club during this transfer window. Having had little luck in pursuing Adam Johnson and Stewart Downing, they have turned to Woodgate as they seek cover for Ledley King.
