So the big news Sunday was confirmation of rumors that came out late last week, that Rob Green was looking to move to Huddersfield Town and Leeds United was looking to add Andy Lonergan from Wolverhampton.

Huddersfield’s manager David Wagner jumped the gun a wee bit on Saturday, confirming that the other West Yorkshire club was signing Green pending a medical, and he was announced as a Terrier minutes after Leeds officially confirmed that it had released Green by mutual consent.

This isn’t a big loss, with Wiedwald exceeding expectations, at least in the minds of fans, and Green’s desire to sit on the bench in the Premier League. We wish him the best, and welcome Andy back to the club.
