The QPR stopper was linked with a return to Upton Park this summer.
It was a deal that seemed possible. QPR wanted to keep him, but Green is a big earner at Loftus Road and could have been sacrificed.
Green would also have been keen on remaining in the Premier League, after what was a decent season for him last term.
He was being targeted as a rival for current number one Adrian but West Ham signed Darren Randolph on a free transfer from Birmingham City and in the end Green never made the move back to West Ham.
Something that West Ham co-chairman David Gold had to explain to a fan yesterday. He was responding to this Tweet from a fan when he had to politely tell the fan in question that Green was indeed still a QPR player:
@davidgold Hi David, thanks for all your efforts in the transfer window, some great deals for the club, did we get Robert Green in the end?— chriscartledge (@CartledgeChris) September 4, 2015
Robert Green still plays for QPR. dg https://t.co/LC5bEVM2eW— David Gold (@davidgold) September 4, 2015
West Ham have already had some keeper drama this season. Adrian was recently sent off for a foul against Leicester City but Randolph has proved himself to be a more than able replacement.
So Green is perhaps not needed at the club, even if one fan was clearly hopeful he had returned after three years away.
