Three and in for Woody

Midweek Sport - - THURSDAY MARCH 8 -

JONATHAN WOODGATE is on course to earn a new con­tract with Stoke af­ter re­build­ing his ca­reer un­der Tony Pulis.

Woodgate is poised to trig­ger a clause in his cur­rent pay-as-you-play deal that guar­an­tees him an­other 12 months at the Bri­tan­nia Sta­dium.

The for­mer Eng­land in­ter­na­tional, 32, signed as a free agent last sum­mer af­ter leav­ing Spurs.

And af­ter a suc­ces­sion of in­jury-rav­aged sea­sons he has made 17 league ap­pear­ances for the Pot­ters – with an­other three set to au­to­mat­i­cally win him a new con­tract.
