Green deal points to Paddy exit
Queens Park Rangers,
QPR are ready to listen to offers for Paddy Kenny after officially signing ex-West Ham and England keeper Rob Green on a two-year deal.
Green left West Ham after their promotion success last season and can officially join Rangers on July 1 when his contract at Upton Park expires. But the deal to sign the soon-to-be free agent has all been agreed, making the 32-year-old goalkeeper Mark Hughes' third summer signing, following deals for defender Ryan Nelsen and striker Andrew Johnson. Kenny's future now appears to be away from Loftus Road with speculation already mounting that Leeds United are standing by with a bid to re-unite him with his ex-QPR, Sheffield United and Bury boss Neil Warnock. Green is currently with the England squad at the European Championships in Poland and Ukraine, where he is acting as backup to Joe Hart. A delighted Hughes said: "It was important we brought another quality keeper into the group. "Rob is obviously someone with vast experience at international and Premier League level and his pedigree speaks for itself. "He's got all the characteristics of a top keeper and he'll be a huge addition for us who will stimulate the goalkeeping group, which can only be good for the squad as a whole." Green, speaking from England's base in Krakow, said he was excited by the move and couldn't wait to get started.
