GREEN’S EYES ON EMER­ALD

The Football League Paper - - NEWS -

PAUL GREEN ad­mits his fu­ture at Leeds is all but over – but his in­ter­na­tional am­bi­tions with Ire­land are look­ing up af­ter he joined Ip­swich on loan.

The 30-year-old has played 10 times for United this sea­son, but has not fea­tured since Oc­to­ber.

But the mid­fielder, who was born in Pon­te­fract, is keen to keep his in­ter­na­tional ca­reer go­ing af­ter he played in Martin O'Neill's first two games as Repub­lic of Ire­land man­ager in Novem­ber. And he be­lieves the move to Port­man Road was the right one.

“In­ter­na­tion­als are a big thing for me. To be play­ing games and to get into the squad for March for the friendly against Ser­bia would be great, but we’ll see what hap­pens when that comes around,” said Green, who joins the Trac­tor Boys un­til the end of the sea­son.

“I’ve not been in­volved much this year and that's prob­a­bly a big fac­tor in me not stay­ing next year.

“It would be nice to get some­thing sorted – if not here at Ip­swich then some­where else.

“Leeds is my home town and I loved it there. Neil Warnock brought me in but this year I've been out of favour. I en­joyed it and it’s a shame I couldn't stay. But it’s nice to be down at Ip­swich and help­ing them get into the play-offs.”
