Ex-Newcastle defender Jonathan Woodgate insists he is determined to prove to new Real Madrid boss Fabio Capello that he worth keeping, despite only making nine league starts for Real Madrid since his massive £13.5m transfer from Newcastle.

And from what we can gather, Glenn Roeder is happy with that. Because he has plenty of problems with injuries without adding another player to the list of long-term casualties.

Chairman Freddy Shepherd, a big fan of the England international, always said the door would be open to him. But even Shepherd knows how much of a risk Woodgate has become.
