Ex-England goalkeeper Rob Green joins Huddersfield Town on short-term deal

Former England goalkeeper Rob Green has agreed to join Huddersfield Town until the end of the season.

Green, 37, who won 12 caps between 2005 and 2012, was a free agent after leaving Leeds by mutual consent.

Head coach David Wagner said the Terriers needed to strengthen their goalkeeping options.

"I think it makes total sense to bring Rob Green in because after Jonas Lossl, who has done an excellent job so far, we have very young goalkeepers with Joel Coleman and Ryan Schofield," Wagner told the club's official website.

"He is a very experienced guy and a good guy. He knows the role I expect from him in the next 10 months he'll be with us. I'm very happy he can join us."

Green, who came through the youth system at Norwich, has also played for West Ham and QPR.

Meanwhile, Wagner said his side had made "a perfect start" to life in the Premier League after taking seven points from their first three matches.

"We have now seven points, three clean sheets, we're in the next [Carabao] Cup round as well, so it's a perfect start for us -- but it's only a start," he said.

"The players have seen now that with every result confidence can grow. Even in the Premier League, if the players follow their identity and they are brave they have a chance."
