New Leeds signing Paul Green has his sights set on promotion to the Premier League with the Whites.

Green: Making the right impression

Green, who has been away with the Republic of Ireland squad at Euro 2012, has agreed a two-year deal at Elland Road and will formally link up with the club on a free transfer at the start of next month when his contract at Derby expires.

"Near the end of the season when you're out of contract people get interested and when I found out Leeds were it was nice to come and have a look around and see the manager and hear what his aspirations were for the club," Green, 29, told the club's official website. "I came to look at the facilities and he (manager Neil Warnock) told me what he wanted to do, and I wanted to be a part of it.

"I didn't need any convincing. You only have to look at what he's done with other clubs to get them to the Premier League so I'm really looking forward to it and it's great to be here.

"There were a few (interested clubs) in the pipeline but this is a massive club and they are looking to get into the Premier League, which is what I'm looking to do.

"This club needs to be in the Premier League and with the way the manager is speaking that's what he wants to do this year, so I'm happy to be a part of that."
