Nathan Smith ......

Recommended Posts


Just had a look at the Port Vale forum they certainly seem to think he''s destined for a much higher level. I couldn''t see any mention of us though, bar alittle talk about when they sold us Beckford.

Norwich City are eyeing up a move for Port Vale defender Nathan Smith, according to The Daily Star.

The report claims that Norwich, Stoke, Arsenal and Liverpool are all keeping tabs on the defender ahead of a potential move.

Scouts from Arsenal and Liverpool were on hand to watch the central defender in action against Charlton at the weekend.

The 20-year-old has amassed 18 appearances already this season and is fast becoming one of the most highly rated youngsters in the lower leagues of English football.

The report says that Smith is valued at £1.5m, which will seem a minute figure compared to regular transfers for the aforementioned clubs.

His contract with Port Vale runs until 2020, with the League One club in a strong position to bargain over his value.

Norwich have conceded 29 goals in the Championship this season, which is the most of any of the top 20 teams in the division.

[quote user="Mary Poppins"]Too many Smiths at the club already, no thanks. Rather have Titus Bramble.[/quote]

Does anyone know if, when his team defends a corner, he makes an attempt to jump and head the ball, thus preventing an opponent from getting a free header on goal. If he does, he would be a massive upgrade on what we have at the moment.

We wont be after him Webbo118 as he doesn''t play in midfield.

I saw him play on telly earlier in the season and he does look half decent my big worry is he''s not an imposing physical presence, but he is determined and aggressive something all of our centrebacks seem to be missing.
