Done deal: Proven PL performer agrees terms with Leeds

By Alex Stevens

Rob Green has agreed the terms of a new Leeds contract, the club have confirmed.

The Championship giants announced on their official website on Saturday evening that the veteran goalkeeper has signed a 12-month extension.

Leeds revealed on their official media channels that Green, 37, will remain at the club until the summer of 2018.

In a statement, Leeds explained that Green has triggered an appearance-related clause in the contract that he signed when he joined on a free transfer last summer.

Green has started all 38 of Leeds’ Championship encounters this season and kept his 14th clean sheet of the campaign as they defeated high flying Brighton 2-0 at Elland Road on Saturday evening.

The keeper was hailed by former Elland Road striker Noel Whelan as one of the two outstanding players in the Leeds team that caused an upset.

Football Insider revealed on Saturday morning that Green had secured a fresh Leeds contract after evidence came to light in new documents registered with the Football Association on 23 February.

Green made his 600th league appearance in the goalless draw against former club Rangers at Elland Road last Saturday.

He has overcome a difficult start in the early months of the season to win the favour of Leeds supporters after consistently showing the form that made him a proven Premier League performer during his days at Norwich, West Ham and QPR.
