Jonathan Woodgate is hoping to end his career by helping home-town club Middlesbrough to return to the Barclays Premier League.

The 32-year-old central defender completed a remarkable return to Teesside on Friday when he signed a three-year deal after his contract at Stoke had expired.

He said: "The pull of helping Boro back in the Premier League is very strong for me, and from what I have seen of the current squad, I think it's achievable."
