Leeds Target Derby Midfielder

Leeds United target Paul Green hopes to finalise his departure from Derby County later this week, with Middlesbrough and Ipswich also chasing his signature.The Republic of Ireland international has indicated that a deal to take him from Pride Park is imminent after rejecting a new contract with the Rams.Green, 29, is out of contract at the end of next month and will be officially available on a free transfer on July 1, and Leeds are at the centre of another intense tussle to sign him.United staved off competition from Ipswich and Norwich City to sign centre-back Jason Pearce and are also looking to beat three Championship clubs to the signature of Portsmouth right-back Joel Ward.Ipswich and Boro are in the running to land former Doncaster player Green, who has more than 400 senior appearances to his name, and the midfielder wants his future resolved quickly with the possibility of an appearance at Euro 2012 in front of him.Green is one of five players named on standby by Republic coach Giovanni Trapattoni and he will travel to Poland and Ukraine if injuries weaken Ireland’s pool of midfielders before the tournament begins.
