Leeds fans have taken to twitter to get behind their club’s signing of former World Cup goalkeeper Rob Green.
Green was announced as a Leeds player on Wednesday evening and their fans went into overdrive to give their opinion of the veteran’s arrival.
Football Insider reported confirmation of the deal, with Green signing a 12-month deal.
Green’s contract at QPR expired at the start of July and Leeds have taken advantage of his availability by landing him ahead of their rivals.
The club have now completed a deal for the 2010 World Cup keeper and announced the arrival of the 36-year-old via their social media platforms.

Green has been an important player for QPR this season, making 24 appearances in the Championship.
However a disappointing mid-table finish has led to changes at Loftus Road and the former West Ham stopper wasn’t given a new contract.
The 36-year-old’s career has stretched 18 years in professional football, since he signed his first professional deal with Norwich in 1998.
Largely, the Elland Road faithful have supported the news and are welcoming the ageing shot stopper with open eyes but as always, one or two aren’t convinced by his quality.
