According to rumours surfacing from Twitter, Middlesbrough are eyeing Leeds keeper Rob Green – though our landlord here in the Transfer Tavern remains sceptical about this gossip.
The former England international signed for United last summer and played every Championship game.
Leeds narrowly missed out on a play-off place, but after impressing during his first season at the club, Green signed a new one-year contract extension at the club in March.
Green conceded 47 times, but kept 15 clean sheets for The Whites as they finished 7th in the Championship.
The 37-year-old will surely be desperate to have one more run of Premier League football and with the lack of stability at Leeds, a move to Boro could be favourable.
Former Leeds boss Garry Monk left the club at the end of last season, just two days after Andrea Radrizzani completed his takeover of the club.
Leeds fans have been reacting indifferently to the rumours on Twitter….

As much as I like Rob Green, if Felix Wiedwald is available (which looks likely) then it would be a good move getting him in. #lufc

LUFC losing Robert Green would be like a lonely child losing his beloved father.

I like what is happening at #lufc
But I don't want to lose our identity
Players like Green etc need to remain

I was more than happy with rob green last season,looks like we are planning 4 the future at the mo, so I get why we are buying who we are

I sincerely hope Rob Green stays and remains first choice. Our best non-Chris-Wood player by a mile in the second half of the season. #lufc

We are after a keeper from Germany then, Green at 38 aint going to improve so makes sense #lufc
