Playing Career


Club(s)
A Norwich City FC trainee, before signing professionally on 3 July 1997. After 223 league appearances, Green signed for West Ham United FC on 16 August 2006, for a fee up to £2 million. He signed for Queen's Park Rangers FC on 1 July 2012. During the January 2016 transfer window, a move to Crystal Palace FC had fallen through.  Green was released from QPR upon the expiration of his contract in May 2016. On 6 July 2016, Green signed with Leeds United AFC. He returned to the top flight on 27 August 2017, when Huddersfield Town AFC signed him after Leeds had agreed to terminate his contract. He was released by Town without featuring in any senior matches, and on 26 July 2018, he was signed by Chelsea FC, where again, he failed to make a first-team appearance. Green announced his retirement on 31 May 2019.
