Newcastle agree £6m fee for Smith

Recommended Posts

Newcastle have confirmed they have agreed a fee with Manchester United for England striker Alan Smith. The Magpies are in talks with the 26-year-old, who has been linked to a host of Premiership clubs, and it is believed the deal is worth ã6m. Smith could even make his Newcastle debut alongside former Leeds team-mate Mark Viduka in a pre-season friendly against Sampdoria on Sunday. Out-of-contract Lyon captain Cacapa, 31, is also in talks with Newcastle. The Brazilian central defender skippered the French champions in each of their last five title-winning seasons. Newcastle manager Sam Allardyce has so far added Viduka, Joey Barton, David Rozehnal and Geremi to the squad since arriving at the club. But with six players departing and Kieron Dyer also set to leave, Allardyce has been frustrated over the lack of new faces. However, the club are hopeful of pipping north-east rivals Middlesbrough and Sunderland, as well as the likes of Everton and Tottenham, to Smith's signature. Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson had previously admitted there was plenty of interest in the player. Everton's chase is thought to be dependent upon them offloading James Beattie, while Boro's bid looks to have stalled. Smith has two years left on his current United deal but it had been expected that he would be sold before the start of the season. He battled back from a broken leg to play last season but the offer of a new deal at Old Trafford has not materialised. The striker was signed from Leeds for ã7m three years ago. http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/t...ted/6927869.stm

decent signing.Hard worker, good squad player, can come in an play in two positions and give his all.Good, strong, youngish english talent with experience and had a good record for man utd when playing upfront.Think he could be a 10goal man off the bench.Would work well with any of newcastles strikers IMO.6Million is a tad overpriced, but what english talent isnt these days?
