Rob Green is now looking for a new club again after Huddersfield chose to release him at the end of the season. Green was a favourite at Leeds United last season but was shipped out as Leeds tried to get a keeper who played out from the back, it didn’t work out.
Green had a tough few weeks early doors at Leeds but he soon made his mark with some very good performances. As the season went on he actually became a very worthy candidate for the Player of the Year award which Chris Wood eventually took home. Green joined Huddersfield and his wages were clearly an issue as he departed for the Premier League where he failed to make a single appearance and ended up as the third choice goalkeeper. In fact Huddersfield didn’t really need him but taking a Leeds favourite as well as having him around the place was probably too good to turn down. Leeds’ experiment backfired dramatically and the season ended with Baily Peacock-Farrell as the number one.
His release by Huddersfield begs the question, would we actually take him back a year after we let him go? Baily Peacock-Farrell has had a fantastic end to the season and is heading into the summer firmly as the number one, a call-up to the Northern Ireland squad this week will send his confidence sky-high and why shouldn’t it be he has really stood out as a keeper with huge potential and someone who can cope in the first-team environment. Personally I would take Green back to compete with Peacock-Farrell but I can’t help but think he was pretty ticked off with the club for basically forcing him out at the start of last season. He’s a player who all Leeds fans will wish the best, I don’t think it’s impossible Leeds could look at him as an option.
