Jonathan Woodgate insists s he is still a Real Madrid player, despite reports that the Spanish club have agreed his sale to Premiership club Middlesbrough.
Woodgate, 27, is currently on a season-long loan at Middlesbrough after two injury-hit seasons at the Bernabeu in which he made just nine first-team appearances.
Real coach Fabio Capello is understood to have made it clear that Woodgate does not figure in his long-term plans in Madrid.
However, Woodgate insists he will only decide on his future once he has completed his loan spell at Middlesbrough at the end of this season.
“I haven’t got a clue where the story came from,” the defender said. “I’ve got a contract with Real Madrid, then all this stuff comes out and I haven’t got a clue what’s happening.
“All I know is that I’ve got a contract with Madrid until the end of the season and we’ll see what happens then and where I go in the summer.
“Madrid agreed a fee with Middlesbrough at the start of the season, then it all came out that I was going, but I haven’t been transferred anywhere.
“I’m a Real Madrid player and I’m on loan at Middlesbrough, so we’ll see what happens at the end of the year.”
