Rob Green will stay at Leeds for another 12 months after triggering an appearance-related clause in his contract, according to a reliable journalist.

Yorkshire Evening Post correspondent Phil Hay took to Twitter to share the details of the new deal agreed by the 37-year-old goalkeeper.

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.

Hay confirmed to a Leeds supporter that the deal was done and explained on his personal Twitter account that the veteran keeper, 37, had played enough matches this season to warrant a year-long extension.

Intriguingly, there has been no official announcement from Leeds that Green has extended the contract he signed when joining on a free transfer last summer.

Green has started all 37 of Leeds’ Championship encounters and is on course to play every minute of their 46-match campaign.

He is now set to remain at the Yorkshire giants until the summer of 2018, although Hay pointed out on Twitter he might not necessarily remain first choice in goal should circumstances change.

Former Norwich, West Ham and QPR keeper Green made his 600th league appearance in the goalless draw against former club Rangers at Elland Road last Saturday.

The former England international, 37, has won many of the Leeds fans over with his performances in recent months after a difficult start to his career at the club following his free transfer.

He is set to be named in the starting XI for Saturday evening’s Championship showdown against fellow promotion hopefuls Brighton at Elland Road.
