Three goalkeepers Leeds could sign in January to replace Green
COMMENT By Will Butcher
Rob Green’s future at Leeds is still no closer to being solved as he looks set to enter the final six months of his year-long deal.
The 36-year-old is Leeds undisputed number one between the sticks, but has proved shaky on a number of occasions with his most notable blunder coming against Newcastle last month.
With Green set to turn 37 in January, manager Garry Monk could be tempted to bring in a new shot stopper in January and here are three potential targets:
A 19-time Wales international, Myhill is struggling to earn a place in Tony Pulis’ starting XI this season with the form of Ben Foster keeping him on the bench.

At 33, Myhill could be tempted to jump ship rather than risk wasting his career on the sidelines at the Hawthorns.
With less 18 months remaining on his current deal, the Baggies could be tempted to cash in on their number two goalkeeper in a cut-price deal that would benefit Leeds.
Currently with Greek giants Panathanaikos, Steele could be looking for a way back to England as his career begins to enter its final stages.
The former Manchester United stopper, 32, possesses plenty of quality and is in a similar contract situation to Myhill.
With plenty of Football league experience at West Brom, Coventry and Barnsley, Steele could be the perfect suitor to replace England international Green.
Rangers goalkeeper Foderingham has proved to be one of the 54-time Scottish champions’ star players in their rise from Scotland’s fourth tier to second in the Scottish Premiership.
Still only 25, the shot stopper is known for his eye-catching ability to turn a shot around the post as well as his impressive distribution from the back.
However, manager Mark Warburton is able to price Leeds out of a move as the former Swindon Town goalkeeper has three years remaining on his current Ibrox deal.
