Woody Reject Rumours Rubbished

Recommended Posts

NEWCASTLE United chairman Freddy Shepherd has dismissed newspaper reports claiming the club has rejected the chance to bring Jonathan Woodgate back to St. James' Park from Barcelona.


The 26-year-old left Gallowgate for Real Madrid in August 2004, making him the most expensive sale in the Magpies' history when he moved to Spain.


Injuries have blighted his time at the Bernabeu Stadium, prompting one national tabloid to report on Thursday that the England star had been offered back to United.


But chairman Freddy Shepherd told nufc.co.uk: "These reports are simply not true, and it is important our fans know that.


"The club has a great relationship, both with Jonathan, who was a very popular player in his time at Newcastle, and with Real Madrid, after our transfer dealings involving both Jonathan and Michael Owen in recent times.


"But stories saying we have been offered Jonathan back - and that we have also rejected him - are completley inaccurate.


"The close season is always the silly season when so much transfer speculation appears in newspapers."
