Statement on Robert Green

West Ham United have responded to a newspaper report this morning about Robert Green's position at the club.

Chief Executive Scott Duxbury said: "Less than a year ago, Robert Green entered into a five-year contract with West Ham United. The club were delighted to recognise his status as our No1 goalkeeper and rewarded him with this long-term deal.

"At the time the player entered into the new contract, he requested a mechanism to review the terms in summer 2009. This was and remains the appropriate time to review. We value Robert Green highly, that is why we gave him a five-year contract less than 12 months ago. We have no intention of selling him and do not propose to comment on this further."
