The 28-year-old finally moved from Middlesbrough to Spurs on Monday for a fe thought to be £7million.

Keegan spoke to him atthe weekend, but gave up the ghost saying: "He will not be coming to St James' Park, so we can write a line under it."

Woodgate: "I think it's a false position in the league, with the quality we've got.

"I hope we can climb up the league and get as high as we can.

"The group of players we've got here is exceptional - young players, and experience as well.

"They've got a great future. Obviously they are in Europe and in the (Carling) Cup - and the manager is excellent. He's won things with Sevilla, and a lot of the players are fantastic as well.

"There was an offer in this transfer window.

"When I knew it was Spurs - it's a good club and it's going forward with the new manager as well and they have got a lot of exciting players.

"I'm delighted to come. I've been given the chance to speak to the club. It's what I wanted to do from the start really."
