Smith Completes Newcastle Move

Smith Completes Newcastle Move

Alan Smith has signed for Newcastle United for an undisclosed fee, believed to be around 6 million.

As we've already reported, United had agreed a fee with Newcastle for the Yorkshireman who had other offers, too. Sam Allardyce expressed his hope that Smith would sign for them and he got his wish.

The 26-year-old striker signed a five-year-deal at St. James' Park.

Good luck, Smudger, and thanks for everything!

Hopefully he'll do well though I can't see how he'll hold down a first-team place ahead of Martins, Owen and Viduka... and I believe Luque is still there?

strange move, infact very strange, cash motivated methinks.

I disagree! I think it's a good move for both Smith and Newcastle. Can see him building up a decent partnership with Owen/Martins.

cant see Viduka sitting on the bench without a transfer request coming in, Robbo should have made him an offer he couldn't refuse !!!

i think he will play smith in the attacking midfielder role (to replace dyer) and then play one of viduka.martins.luque up top with owen.
