Re-sign player they released in the summer? It could make sense for Leeds United

Leeds United's biggest summer error was clearly the decision to release Robert Green from his contract.

It was a choice made out of generosity, having made clear he would only be a back-up to Felix Wiedwald.

The problem is Wiedwald has done little to inspire confidence, and was dropped for error-prone veteran Andy Lonergan.

The goalkeeping situation has destabilised Leeds United's season so far, while Green's spell at new side Huddersfield Town has been a waste of time thus far.

While Green has the luxury of being labelled a Premier League player once again, the veteran is yet to make a league appearance.

The former England international is not even a clear cut second choice at Huddersfield, and has made the bench in only five of the 10 Premier League matches he has been eligible for.

The reason Green left Leeds was that he did not want to waste the tail end of his career sitting on the bench, but this is the situation he has walked into, when he has been lucky.

It would make perfect sense for Leeds to admit their mistake and try to bring him back.

A loan deal may not be out of the question given Huddersfield's sparing use of him, and Leeds should make enquiries to see if they can bring back Green and save their season.
