Alan Smith completes Notts County move

20 May 2014

Notts County have signed former Leeds United and England striker Alan Smith.

The 33-year-old, who now plays in midfield, has agreed a one-year contract to become player-coach at Meadow Lane.

Smith, who has also played for Manchester United and Newcastle, was a free agent after being released by MK Dons.

County boss Shaun Derry said: " Alan's a player that I have admired for sometime.

"When I saw him play here for MK Dons back in March he was by far the best player on the pitch and I knew that he still had plenty to offer, so I'm delighted to be able to bring him on board as a player-coach.

"It's not just what he will bring us on the pitch, it's about the impact that he will have on the training ground and in the dressing room, because he is a strong character and epitomises the kind of player that I want to bring in this summer and he sets standards in everything he does."
