Christiansen responds to reported interest in Leeds senior player
By Danny Wright
Thomas Christiansen has refused to get drawn into talking about a report linking Huddersfield with Leeds goalkeeper Rob Green.
The Daily Mail has reported that the Premier League Terriers are plotting a late summer swoop for Green, 37, as David Wagner looks to bolster his goalkeeping options with deadline day just around the corner.
However Christiansen has made it clear that he won’t be making any judgement on Green’s future at Elland Road until after Saturday’s clash at Nottingham Forest.
“I will talk about him after the game,” said the Leeds boss, as quoted by Yorkshire Evening Post reporter Lee Sobot on his personal Twitter account on Friday.

Green was a mainstay of Garry Monk’s squad last season as the Whites fell just short in their bid to secure a Championship play-off spot, but following Felix Wiedwald’s arrival this summer, the ex-England international has fell down the pecking order at Elland Road.

Christiansen’s comment suggests that he is willing to take Green’s situation into consideration, but it would give Leeds yet another gap to fill before next Thursday’s transfer deadline day.
However the senior player isn’t the only Leeds star attraction attention at the moment with the Yorkshire Evening Post reporting that Norwich are keen on winger Stuart Dallas.
