Newcastle to Sign Alan Smith

Looks like Newcastle has won the Alan Smith derby. Big Sam has added a lot of quality players since he took over: Alan Smith, Mark Viduka, Joey Barton, David Rozehnal and Geremi. Newcastle is one of those teams where you always wonder why they underperform so. This signing should make Alan Shearer happy.

Where will Obafemi Martins find a place in this strike team?

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 £6m.

Smith could even make his Newcastle debut alongside former Leeds team-mate Mark Viduka in a pre-season friendly against Sampdoria on Sunday. Alan Smith Set For Newcastle - Report

The future of Manchester United's England striker Alan Smith could soon be resolved with the Manchester Evening News reporting that United have accepted a £6 million offer from Premiership rivals Newcastle deal for the former Leeds man.

Somth, 26, is apparently due to hold talks today with Newcastle manager Sam Allardyce over personal terms.

A transfer could then be completed this week.
