Speaking ahead of Tuesday's third-round FA Cup replay with Tottenham, Woodgate says the situation with Randolph could become clear over the next few days.

"It's the longest medical I've ever known in history and I've had a few medicals myself," joked Woodgate.

"But this [medical] is unbelievable. Let's see what happens over the next 24 hours.

"Darren is a professional, he's been an outstanding keeper for us. We will wait and see."
