'Solid', 'Good pro' - Leeds fans react as club reportedly line up Green replacement

By Danny Wright

Leeds are reportedly close to completing the signing of goalkeeper Andy Lonergan from Wolves – and on the whole, fans on Twitter seem pleased with the news.

Yorkshire Evening Post reporter Phil Hay claimed on his personal Twitter account on Friday evening that Leeds are 48 hours away from re-signing Lonergan, 33, after Huddersfield set their sights on Rob Green.

It is understood that the veteran goalkeeper’s return to Elland Road will be done on a free transfer and that he is likely to serve as back-up to Felix Wiedwald, who has forced Green down the pecking order with the Whites following his switch from Werder Bremen earlier this summer.

Lonergan spent the 2011/12 season at Leeds in before he was sold to Bolton, and many fans have recalled memories of the shot-stoppers previous spell now that they are linked with a move to re-sign him, with most supporters thinking he would be a “solid” addition.

Lonergan made 38 appearances for Leeds in his previous spell at Elland Road and has since been axed from the Wolves first-team squad this season after failing to impress new manager Nuno Espirto Santo.

He made 15 appearances for the West Midlands side last season, keeping five clean sheets in the process as they avoided relegation.
