Leeds United have confirmed the signing of former England goalkeeper Robert Green.

Green is a free agent after being released by QPR, and becomes the club's fourth signing of the summer.

The stopper signs on a 12 month deal, following Marcus Antonsson, Kyle Bartley and  Hadi Sacko, all signed within the last fortnight.

Green is 36-years-old and brings with him a wealth of experience at Premier League and Championship level.

The goalkeeper is the fourth at the club, joining Marco Silvestri, Ross Turnbull and Bailey Peacock-Farrell.

His arrival means one of the trio are likely to be sold, and it is Silvestri who has the biggest resale value.

The Italian has been at Leeds for two seasons but new head coach Garry Monk seemingly wants a more experienced goalkeeper to lead his team.

Green is heading straight out to Ireland to join up with his new teammates for their pre-season training camp.
