Tottenham Hotspur: Loan option for Woodgate

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has revealed that he could send Jonathan Woodgate out on loan in order to aid the defender's recovery from a long-term groin injury.

The former Real Madrid centre back returned to training this week after spending more than a year on the sidelines.

Redknapp had feared Woodgate would not be able to play this season after a series of operations but he revealed today that the 30-year-old could return to first-team action in two weeks' time and admitted a loan spell could aid his recovery.

Redknapp said: "I spoke to Jonathan and I said to him that if he comes through the next couple of weeks then it might be a good idea for him to go out on loan to play some matches and I think he fancies that."
