PositionDefender/Centre back

Jonathan Woodgate began the 2000-01 season as a first choice in the centre of defence for Leeds United and looked in fine form.

However, he picked up an injury in only the second game at Middlesbrough putting him on the sidelines for a short while.

He returned with some high quality performances, notably in the Champions' League draws with Besiktas and Barcelona when the side was up against extreme pressure.

He again limped off in November in the Premiership encounter with Liverpool, but returned against Real Madrid to hit a post after five minutes with the scores at 0-0, and saved probably his best performance of the season for the 1-0 victory at Lazio when he was simply world-class.

He appeared in the FA Cup Fourth Round defeat by Liverpool at the end of January before stepping back to focus on an off the field matter that became well-documented.

After making only 37 appearances in almost two injury-troubled years at Newcastle, it came as a surprise when Jonathan's move to Real Madrid realised a Toon record sale of £13.65million.

Jonathan joined Real Madrid in August 2004 with a four-year contract.

After a season's loan at his home-town club, Jonathan joined Middlesbrough in June 2007 with a four-year contract.

He joined Tottenham Hotspur in January 2008 with a contract to June 2011.

Jonathan re-joined Middlesbrough in July 2012 with a three-year contract that was extended to June 2016 in July 2015.
