Middlesbrough boss hopeful Woodgate will sign deal

He told Boro’s website: “There are lots of positives for him. He’s broken back into the England squad while playing with us, so we’ve shown his international ambitions won’t be harmed by being here.

“It’s a big decision for Jonathan to make. The fact that he’s enjoyed the season as much as he has is in our favour, but he’s with a big club and he has to decide what he wants to do.”
