Arsenal and Middlesbrough lead race for Leeds’ ex-England man
He may have celebrated his 37th birthday earlier this year, but Leeds United keeper Rob Green is showing no signs of hanging up his boots. However, it looks unlikely he’ll be plying his trade at Elland Road next term, with a host of clubs chasing his signature.
Arsenal and Middlesbrough are 4/1 joint-favourites to add the former England stopper to their ranks this summer, but with Boro’s dire need for a new keeper, we reckon they offer the better value here.
Brad Guzan and Victor Valdes have both parted ways with the Teesside outfit this summer, leaving the club without an experienced stopper. However, the Gunners have emerged as an interested party in the last couple of days – and could prove tough to turn down.
That pair are followed in the market by a pair of Boro’s North-East rivals, with Sunderland 5/1 shots to add the Chertsey native to their ranks, while a move to newly-promoted Newcastle United is priced up at 8/1.
Meanwhile, it’s a couple of Green’s former clubs who round out the market.
There’s 9/1 on offer for a return to West Ham United, while it’s 12s that he heads home to Norwich City – the club where he made his senior debut way back in April 1999.
