Former Queens Park Rangers, West Ham and Leeds United man joins Premier League newboys Huddersfield Town

Rob Green has returned to the top flight after signing for Huddersfield Town

Former England goalkeeper Rob Green is back in the Premier League.

The 37-year-old shot stopper had his contract terminated by Championship rivals Leeds United, and he has made the move across Yorkshire to sign for Huddersfield Town today.

Green spent four seasons with QPR from 2012 to 2016 and was involved in one of the more bizarre contract stories in football when he left.

The ex England man was first choice at Loftus Road, but with the club in financial trouble he was forced to leave at the end of the 2015/16 campaign when the club stopped playing him so a clause to trigger a contract extension was not triggered.

He made 25 appearances during that campaign, had he got to 30, the club would have been forced to extend his expensive contract for another season.

Rangers had a more than capable replacement for Green in Alex Smithies, who went on to win the club's player of the year award last season.

Green signed a one-year deal with the Terriers today.
