Middlesbrough-born Jonathan Woodgate had two stints with his hometown club after carving out his career elsewhere. 

Centre back Woodgate rose through the ranks of Leeds United's Academy, where he would become a mainstay at the heart of the defence. 

Making his debut for the Whites when he was only 18, Woodgate played his part in Leeds reaching the semi-finals of the Uefa Cup and the Champions League.

However Woodgate would depart Elland Road as part of a fire sale in 2003, linking up with Newcastle United briefly before he made the big money move to Real Madrid. 

Injuries stalled the former England international's career, and he eventually returned to Teesside in 2006 when he signed for Boro on loan. 

After impressing with his boyhood team, the switch from the Bernabeu to the Riverside became a permanent one. 

Woodgate's form caught the attentions of Tottenham Hotspur in 2008, helping them lift the League Cup when he netted the winner - and his first goal for the club - in injury time against Chelsea. 

A brief one-year spell with Stoke City followed, but he was back home in the summer of 2012, and called time on his playing career four years later as Boro secured a return to the Premier League. 

After hanging his boots up, Woodgate worked as a scout in Spain for Liverpool and he was back at Boro again in March 2017 when he became part of the first team coaching staff. 

Jonathan went on to work with the Under-18s at the start of the 2017/18 season before stepping up to the role of first team coach during Tony Pulis' tenure as manager.
