Woodgate released by Tottenham

Jonathan Woodgate has been released by Tottenham.

The Guardian says the defender's luckless problems with injuries have brought his career at Tottenham Hotspur to an almost inevitable conclusion, with the former England defender released from his contract at White Hart Lane.

Woodgate is on the 123 names submitted to the Premier League as released players or free agents, a list that also includes Matthew Upson at West Ham United and Manchester City's Patrick Vieira, a development that could bring to an end the British career of one of the outstanding midfielders of the Premier League years.

In Woodgate's case it brings to an end a largely peripheral role at Spurs in which his recurring injuries restricted him to only one appearance last season and, in total, a mere 65 spread over the three and a half years since he signed from Middlesbrough for £8m.
