Long-term Tottenham absentee Jonathan Woodgate has rejected a move to Wolves, after the West Midlanders made an official approach to take the centre-back on loan until the end of the season earlier today.

Woodgate has made just three Premier League starts since the beginning of last season, after repeatedly succumbing to a niggling groin problem for the past 18 months.

It was though that Wolves manager Mick McCarthy was keen to give the injury-riddled defender an immediate crack at first-team football, though Woodgate rejected the deal outright as he is hell-bent on earning himself a new contract at White Hart Lane.
