The 26-year-old goalkeeper's contract with the Canaries runs out at the end of next season, and although the club have an option for a further year after that his future is bound to be the subject of some speculation during the summer.

But as far as Green is concerned his club career will be taking a back-seat while he is representing his country in the World Cup - and he has even turned off his mobile phone to avoid having to answer questions on the subject!

"I certainly won't be talking to the club about my situation while I'm here with England,” he is quoted as saying in a national newspaper.

"My phone is switched off and I'm not even thinking about it."

Green, who is likely to be playing second fiddle to Paul Robinson and David James in Germany, could well be talking to Norwich about his future when he returns from the World Cup if his latest comments are anything to go by.

"I want to be involved in the Premiership and play at the highest level as soon as possible," he said.

"If that's with Norwich, then so much the better, but I've only got one year left on my contract, so my future is out of my hands to a certain extent.”
