Report: Rob Green confident of securing move to West Ham United

Rob Green

West Ham look to be closing in on a deal to sign Rob Green from QPR.

Green is no stranger to the Boleyn Ground, and a report in the Standard claims that he is confident a move to East London will be completed before the end of the transfer window.

There are just over two weeks left before the close of the window, and the report states that Green has told friends that he will be a West Ham player before the end of August.

The Hammers are looking to provide top class cover for first-choice stopper Adrian, and although Darren Randolph was signed in the summer, it appears as if he has not convinced Slaven Bilic enough to be handed that role.

Green also wants to return to the Premier League following QPR’s relegation, as he is keen to remain in the thoughts of England boss Roy Hodgson.

However, a move to the Hammers would likely limit Green’s chances of competitive action of a consistent basis, with Adrian considered one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League. It is unlikely that he will be dislodged from his starting role, even by a player such as Green with his undoubted talent and years of experience.

Green, 35, spent six years in East London earlier in his career, playing 241 times for the club. He helped them win promotion back to the Premier League in 2012, playing his last game for the Hammers in the play-off final that season.

Since then, he has played for QPR, making over 100 appearances and being a key figure in their push to the top flight, as well being one of few players to impress for the R’s in the Premier League last term.
