Search For A Stoke City Star – Nathan Smith

With the international break now over most football journalists will, if they haven’t already, try to justify their paycheques by speculating on who will be going where during the upcoming transfer window. In keeping with this tradition I will be giving you my run down on the players who are being linked with a move to the Bet365. This time a player a little closer to home than some who have been mentioned previously:

Nathan Smith


Current Club: The Fail

Position: Centre Half

Possible Price – One to two Million Pounds (with add-ons)

Anybody else interested: A number of premiership clubs

Giraffe or Lemon:  A young giraffe.

Where Would He Fit In:

Fighting for a place on the bench but more one for the future rather than a first team player

Do We Need Him:

With Muniesa our only recognised centre half cover, I am deliberately ignoring Clumsy, an extra centre half is required just in case the Captain or the Beast gets injured.

Who’s place would be under threat:

Nobodies initially but in time could challenge Muniesa as the team’s centre half cover

Verdict: If the price was right could be worth a flutter and it would be good to have Stoke born players in and around the club, even if they have played for the Fail. Maybe could be brought in January and sent back on loan to the Fail straight away.
