Newcastle United striker Alan Smith was missing for the Magpies tonight at St James’s Park for their friendly with Dutch giants PSV Eindhoven.
That was the big news ahead of kick off tonight with Smith absent for Kevin Keegan’s side on the one year milestone since his first goal for the club on his Toon debut against Sampdoria.
The striker wasn’t injured and has been linked strongly in the last two days with a move to Everton following Andy Johnson’s departure to Fulham.
Smith has had a wretched time recovering from his horror injury sustained whilst playing for Man Utd, but this is surely a good deal; following up the sale of Andy Johnson to Fulham for megabucks with the purchase of Smith for a mere £2million. So, Smith to Goodison - good move, or desperate buy??
