Alan Smith is considering making a move to Doncaster, the Daily Mirror claims, with Dean Saunders hopeful that a deal can be done for a January move.

Smith has had ongoing problems with injuries at St James’ Park, and Alan Pardew told the 30-year-old at the beginning of June that he was free to leave on a free transfer.

The Newcastle star has made one appearance as a sub against Fulham this season, and is on the lookout for a new club to build up more game time.


Leeds were said to be hopeful of bringing Smith back for the new season, but were unable to come to an agreement with the player.

Smith is currently on a £60,000 a week contract at Newcastle, and Doncaster are said to be hopeful that he can leave on a free transfer in January, should the Toon hold to their agreement made with Smith at the beginning of June.

Pardew has said that Smith won’t leave Newcastle on loan, so Doncaster only have one option should they want to bring Smith on board.
