Rob Green: Moves to Leeds

Leeds have completed the signing of former England international goalkeeper Robert Green.

The 36-year-old, who was released by QPR at the end of last season, has signed a one-year deal with Garry Monk’s Championship side. The player was linked with a move to Liverpool in January, but moves to Elland Road as a free agent.

Leeds become Green’s fourth club, after making over 200 appearances for both Norwich and West Ham before joining QPR in 2012.

Green told his new side’s official website: “This is one of those opportunities where the first phone call asking if you want to come and play for Leeds is a very quick one. It was a ‘yes’ straightaway.

“I’m thrilled to be here. I’ve spoken to the manager and I know what he’s got in store and what he’s planning.”

Green’s arrival could spell the end for Leeds’ No 1 of the last two seasons, Italian Marco Silvestri, who often came into criticism from supporters for some high-profile errors, though it’s not known if he will stay to compete with Green.
