New Leeds United signing Rob Green has sent a message to the club's supporters on Twitter.

Green's surprise move to Leeds was confirmed by the club hours earlier via the team's official website.

The veteran goalkeeper was a free agent after his contract at QPR ran down after a mixed spell at Loftus Road.

The stopper is 36 and is a former England international, and could have a prominent role to play this season for the Whites.

He is the fourth goalkeeper at the club, with it now likely one of Ross Turnbull or Marco Silvestri will be moved on, while youngster Bailey Peacock-Farrell recently signed a new deal.

He is now flying out to Ireland to take part in the club's pre-season training camp, and could even make his debut next week against Shelbourne.

Green follows Marcus Antonsson, Kyle Bartley and Hadi Sacko in at Leeds this summer, with Casper Sloth sold earlier this week.
