Leeds completed the signing of free agent Green in the summer and the former England international has become the undisputed number one option under Garry Monk.
The goalkeeper has played in every minute of the Championship this season and kept an impressive 15 clean sheets in return.
He has had considerable help from his strong defensive backline, but has proved that he is still a top-class option.
Leeds suffered a 1-0 defeat to Wolves on Monday and it could have been more if Green had not pulled off a couple of fantastic saves.
The Yorkshire club slipped out of the play-offs as a result and now have just five fixtures remaining to force their way back in.
