Birmingham City are weighing up a move for free agent Rob Green as they look to bolster their goalkeeping option, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Green is available on a free transfer after leaving Huddersfield earlier this summer when his contract expired at the Premier League club.

The 38-year-old joined Huddersfield last summer following his departure from Leeds United, but he did not make a single appearance for the Terriers.

Green found himself playing second fiddle to Jonas Lossl at Huddersfield and the club opted against offering him a new deal this summer, bringing in Leicester's Ben Hamer instead.

Birmingham are understood to be in the market for goalkeeping additions as doubts surround the long-term futures of David Stockdale and Tomasz Kuszczak and Green is believed to figure on their wanted list.

Garry Monk, manager of Middlesbrough looks on prior to the Sky Bet Championship match between Millwall and Middlesbrough at The Den on December 16, 2017 in London, England.

Blues boss Garry Monk is a big admirer of Green having signed him and made him his No.1 goalkeeper when he was in charge of Leeds.

Former West Ham and Norwich goalkeeper Green has made over 650 appearances in his career and he would bring a wealth of experience to the Birmingham side if they decide to make him an offer to bring him to St Andrew's.
