George Green started as a youth player with Bradford City, before being signed aged just 15 by Everton in October 2011 for an initial fee of £300,000 that could have risen as high as £2 million. City's Head of Football Development, Archie Christie, was quoted at the time of the deal saying "this is one of the highest deals ever for a 15-year-old from a League Two club. But George is the best I've seen in his position at his age. He could become another Wayne Rooney or Paul Gascoigne".

He joined the Goodison Park youth setup, and was a member of the Everton side that won the 2014 U18 Premier League and he regularly shone for Everton's Under 21 side - playing on either flank, in central midfield, no.10 or as a striker. During this academy period at Everton, George represented England at Under 16, 17 and 18 level - scoring 3 goals in his 10 caps overall.

George went on loan to Tranmere Rovers in March 2015 and on the 28th March 2015 he made his senior and Football League debut. Starting the game, George made some impression with his loan club by scoring a wondergoal as an injury-time equaliser at home to AFC Wimbledon - earning his side a 1-1 draw. George made six appearances in all whilst at Prenton Park.

On 10 June 2015, George left Everton after nearly four years at the club without having made a senior appearance. Days later, George agreed to joined League One side Oldham Athletic on a two-year contract but voluntarily terminated the contract that November after three appearances in League 1 for the Latics, struggling to settle at his new club. In order to regain his love for football, George signed for his local non-league side Ossett Albion - making his debut on the 10th November.

After seven appearances for Ossett, George returned to the professional game - on the 21st January 2016 he signed for Championship club Burnley on a short-term contract. Impressing the Burnley staff over the coming months both in training and in U21 fixtures, George was rewarded with a new, one year contract on the 19th May 2016 that extends his Clarets stay - now a Premier League club - to the summer of 2017.

On the 12th August 2016, to gain first team experience, George was sent on loan to SPL club Kilmarnock. He made his debut the next day, starting away to Hamilton.
