Report: West Ham in contact over re-signing Robert Green, player keen to leave

Rob Green

West Ham are reportedly interested in re-signing Robert Green.

According to the Daily Mail, West Ham United have contacted Queens Park Rangers over a deal for goalkeeper Robert Green.

The 35-year-old shot stopper had an impressive campaign last term, but couldn't help Chris Ramsey's men slip straight back into the Championship at the first time of asking.

Now, Green could look to make a move back to the top flight, with the Daily Mail reporting that he is keen to leave Loftus Road for another shot in the Premier League.

Intriguingly, the report states that West Ham United have been in contact with QPR over a deal to re-sign Green, three years after he left Upton Park to join the R's.

Green made almost 250 appearances for West Ham during his first stint at the club, and the Daily Mail believe that the Hammers are interested in handing him a return to East London this summer.

The move would certainly be a surprise, given that West Ham not only have one of the finest goalkeepers in the Premier League in Adrian, but have also added another shot stopper this summer in Darren Randolph, who joined on a free transfer from Birmingham City.

Signing Green would bring the future of one of those players into doubt, which seems highly unlikely at this stage - but if, for some reason, Slaven Bilic wants to add an experienced, proven Premier League goalkeeper, then Green would be a smart choice.
