After yet more injury-plagued seasons, making just nine La Liga appearances,  Woodgate returned home to Teesside on 30 August 2006 for a season-long loan stint with Middlesbrough FC, though on 5th February 2007, it was announced by Madrid that the deal would eventually be permanent, and it was, on 26 April, for a fee close to £7 million.  Eight months later, Woodgate left the 'boro to join Tottenham Hotspur FC, for another £7 million, on 28 January 2008, after rejecting a return to Newcastle United FC. He was released on 16 June 2011. he joined Stoke City FC on 11 July, before returning home to Middlesbrough FC on 6 July 2012, to become club captain.
