Derby Land Paul Green On A Free

Derby Land Paul Green On A Free

Derby have completed, or at least will on July 1st, the signing of one of Doncaster's play-off heroes Paul Green.

Green, the only surviving member of Doncaster's rise from non-league to the Championship was offered an improved contract but has turned this down in favour of a free transfer move to Derby, where he will be on more money, something that chief executive Dave Morris was sadden by: 'We're disappointed. We offered a much-improved contract, as high as anybody in the club, and a testimonial,' Morris told BBC Sport. 'But it's a division where money talks and Paul's taken the money.

'We did the best we could. Presumably he felt their offer was more attractive.

The long serving 25-year-old is now looking forward to the next challenged in his career, saying: 'I enjoyed fantastic times at Doncaster.

'However, this a new chapter for me and something that I felt I had to do.'

Paul Jewell was obviously delighted with his latest acquisition: 'Paul is an energetic, tenacious midfielder with an eye for goal and is in the prime of his career,' Jewell told Derby's official website. 'He's been a pivotal part of Doncaster's success as they've risen through the leagues.

'He is just the type of character I want in my dressing room and I'm delighted to have secured his signature.'

Do you think Green has made the right decision signing for Derby, and how much do you think Donny will miss him?

He was offered three times what Donny were offering so you cannot blame him.

Frankly stunned at that one, thought it was a strange signing, not proven at this level, but not much of a gamble on a free transfer though.

I think he will be a great signing and will have no problem adapting to the Championship.

It does seem strange for him to leave, he was out of contract so Rovers couldn't stop him leaving. He wasn't involved in the first team at all until injuries at the club around christmas

Players have relatively short careeers who can blame him for taking more money. It is a very unfair system that allows clubs the parachute paymnet Tiny T. Clubs hardly start the season on an a par with each otherl when some are given huge great wads because they failed, yet those that suceed get very little. Anyone else confused by this?
