Paul Green Joins Leeeds

Derby County midfielder Paul Green has agreed a deal to join Leeds United on July 1. The 29-year-old has agreed a two-year contract and will formally join up with the club at the start of next month. Paul follows Adam Drury and Jason Pearce into the club as Neil Warnock's summer recruitment drive steps up a gear and becomes the club's third signing of the summer. The Republic of Ireland international, Paul came on as a substitute in the Euro 2012 game against Spain last week, has a wealth of experience and joins the club after making over 140 appearances for Derby County following a four-year stint at Pride Park. Ironically, the Pontefract-born midfielder joined Derby from Doncaster, his final appearance for Rovers coming in the 2008 League One Play-Off final against Leeds at Wembley. United boss Neil Warnock said: "Paul is another player I've been after for a long time, but obviously he was called up by Ireland for the European Championships so we've had to be a bit patient. "I've seen him grow from his days at Doncaster and I'm delighted to have him here. "I've always thought that he is a player who can create goals as well as score them, and he has just the type of attitude we need at Elland Road."
