Alan Smith Latest - No Deal Struck

Last updated : 25 June 2007 By Footy Mad - Editor
The Manchester United frontman is certainly on his way ... somewhere ... (and for a while it seemed to be St James' Park) but Boro still have some work to do yet.

Alex Black: "There is a lot of stuff going about at the moment.

"But nothing is going to be done until Alan comes back from his holiday.

"I read various reports over the weekend that he was supposed to be going to Newcastle, Portsmouth and Sunderland as well. So, we'll have to wait and see.

"Alan (Smith) has been concerned about his future ever since United chose not to exercise a clause in his contract, which would have seen it extended by another year to 2010.

"Obviously, you're going to have some question marks in your head as to where that leaves you.

"I think if you're definitely not wanted, you need to be told that."
