In 2006, he transferred to West Ham United, making the same number of appearances in a six-year spell in which he was their Player of the Year in 2008 and won promotion via the Championship play-offs in 2012. He then moved on a free transfer to Queens Park Rangers, winning the play-offs again in 2014. In July 2016, Green joined Leeds United on a one-year contract. He later joined Huddersfield Town and Chelsea for one year each before retiring in 2019.

Green was cut from England's 2006 FIFA World Cup squad due to injury but featured in the 2010 edition, in which he started the competition as England's first choice goalkeeper but was dropped after an error cost England a win against the United States.
