'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Warnock Wants Smith

Following the declaration of Watford's interest in Alan Smith, Neil Warnock of Sheffield United has also indicated he'd like to sign the striker.

Sir Alex Ferguson has already confirmed he's willing to loan out the Yorkshireman in order to regain full fitness following his fracture at Anfield 8 months ago.

Smith had been linked with Cardiff, Leeds, Everton, Villa and even Bayern but so far he suggested he'd rather stay. Neil Warnock is hopeful, though.

The lad is a quality player but it would be dependent on certain conditions.

'The first is whether Sir Alex Ferguson wants to send him somewhere, the second is whether he would want to come. And the third is what his fitness levels are like.

'Alan's been out for quite some time and I think he's probably some way off being ready to play on a regular basis. In my opinion, that's probably why he doesn't seem to want to put himself in that position quite yet.

'Knowing Alan, he'll want to be right, but the answer is yes - I'd definitely try to bring him here.'

can't see why he'd got to Sheffield when he could go to Everton or Villa.

I'd support the idea of a loan to Villa as he would get the necessary games to regain full fitness. O'Neill's team would profit from it, too, I think.

At Sheffield United he would be the best though, whereas at Villa or Everton he would just be seen as pretty good. I think we'd see the best of Smith at Sheffield United.
