Having already enjoyed a professional career that has spanned 13 years, QPR represents Robert Green's third Club.
Green began at Norwich City, coming through the ranks at the Canaries before establishing himself as their first-choice keeper after a brief apprenticeship behind the experienced Andy Marshall.
Green made his debut for the Canaries against local rivals Ipswich Town on April 11th 1999, aged 19. He kept a clean sheet in a 0-0 draw and, following Marshall's departure for the Tractor Boys in the summer of 2001, Green was a regular in Nigel Worthington's side.
He produced an outstanding debut campaign as number one and kept 18 clean sheets as Norwich reached the Championship Play-Off Final, where they lost out to Birmingham City on penalties.
The following campaign, Green was an ever-present and recorded 19 clean sheets to further enhance his quickly-developing reputation.
And it wasn't long before then-England Manager Sven-Göran Eriksson rewarded him with a call-up to his squad. Green was an unused substitute against Sweden in March 2004.
Two months later he was celebrating promotion with Norwich City - his 18 clean-sheets being a crucial part of their return to the Premier League.
Norwich were relegated the following season while Green becameonly the sixth player in the Club's history to be capped for England at senior level when he replaced David James in a friendly against Colombia on May 31st 2005.
In the summer of 2006, following their failure to win promotion, the Canaries accepted a bid reported to be £2million from West Ham United for their keeper.
In his first campaign with the Hammers, Green found himself involved in another relegation battle, but he played a key role as the East London side preserved their top-flight status with a 1-0 win at Manchester United on the final day.
In 2007/08, Green's consistency between the sticks - which included saving three consecutive penalties - led to him being named Hammer of the Year as the Club finished tenth in the top-flight.
In the following two campaigns, Green played in all 38 league matches for West Ham and in 2010/11 he made a total of 44 appearances for the Club and was yet again hugely consistent, being named Hammer of the Year runner-up behind Scott Parker.
However, he was unable to save the Club from relegation that term.
In 2011/12, he made 42 appearances for Sam Allardyce's side, including a Wembley outing, as the Hammers won promotion back to the Premier League courtesy of a 2-1 win over Blackpool in the Play-Off Final.
On the international scene, Green missed out on the 2006 World Cup Finals owing to injury and made his first start for his country - following two substitute appearances - in a 4-0 win against Kazakhstan in a 2010 World Cup qualifier.
Green featured in the 2010 World Cup Finals, making one appearance, and was also named in Roy Hodgson's squad for this summer's European Championships in Poland and Ukraine, keeping a clean sheet in a pre-tournament warm-up fixture against Norway.
