LUFC Green - I didn`t need a lot of convincing
Latest Leeds United signing Paul Green says he did not need a lot of convincing by Neil Warnock to join the club.
Green will sign a two-year deal on July 1st and he is looking forward to working with Warnock and hopefully playing his part in leading Leeds to promotion this coming season.
Speaking on LUTV, Green said, "When I knew Leeds were interested, it was nice to come and have a look around, speak to the manager and hear what his aspirations were for the club.
"I didn`t need a lot of convincing. You only have to see what he has done in getting other clubs to the Premier League, I am really looking forward to it and it is great to be here.
He spoke to me about what he wants to do at the club and I want to be part of it. It is a massive club that are looking to get back into the Premier League and that is what I want to do."
Green has only just returned to the country after being away on international duty with Republic of Ireland at the European championships.
The midfielder made just one substitute appearance in Ireland`s three games when they were defeated by Spain in their second game.
The 29 year old is now looking forward to a welcome break and returning fully charged for the season ahead. "I am going away for a couple of weeks to recharge the batteries and then I am looking forward to getting back at it." added Green.
Green is Warnock`s second signing in two days after defender Adam Drury agreed to sign for Leeds from Norwich City on July 1st.
The pair follow Portsmouth defender Jason Pearce into the club as Warnock looks to build a squad capable of making a sustained push for promotion and earn Warnock a place in the Football League record books with his eighth promotion.
