GREEN’S EYES ON EMERALD
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.”
