Millwall target Smith yet to be offered new deal by Leeds

MILLWALL striker target Matt Smith says he has not yet been offered a contract extension by Leeds United.

Smith was the subject of a failed bid from the Lions in June and remains high on manager Ian Holloway's summer shopping list.

Speaking for the first time about Holloway's interest in him, Smith admitted that his future at Elland Road will be determined by Italian owner Massimo Cellino.

The 25-year-old told the Yorkshire Evening Post: "I'm a Leeds player and that goes until I'm told differently.

"I'd be very sad if I was told differently. I'm very aware of how special it is to wear the badge and I'll never take my position for granted. I'll never disrespect the club.

"Clubs never show an interest in you when you're playing badly so any interest is flattering to a degree but I'm not sure what was happening with Millwall because I wasn’t really kept informed.

"I've just been going about my business and I'm perfectly happy to do that."

Pressed on his contract situation, Smith added: "I'm not aware of any serious movement on that front.

"That's down to the owner to make that happen and it"s his opinion on me that counts."

      @steveomfc5: can't see what all the fuss is about , his goal scoring record is pretty poor and I think Leeds will screw us for a small fortune and be happy to let him go .

    I think there is more than a touch of blarney in this report, until there is something very positive on the table treat it as gossip.

    Smith would be a very good signing - big centre forwards always done well at Millwall. Can see him being like Dichio, hopefully he scores an own goal on Saturday and signs on Monday! COYL

      @Millwall Moss: I go back a bit further. He reminds me of Alf Wood (although a bit taller). He gets up well, is really difficult to mark and can make defenders look silly without being flash. I like him a lot.

        @ColdBlowLane: seems a pointless story and another page filler, would rather hear he is signing Monday rather than bods speculating

    Still don't get the fuss over this fella? If Leeds don't want him that should tell you everything you need to know. He might be a great signing or a s**** signing but if he doesn't sign I don't have the feeling that we'll be talking about the one that got away in a couple of years time?

    If Leeds have any sense they will only sell him after Saturday, if he doesn't play against us the deal is already agreed and I bet we get him early next week.

    Apparently he has alreay been given Leeds' number 9 squad number for 2014/15, which is not a random squad number at all. Unless Massimo Cellino doesn't like the number 9? (as with the number 17: http://www.theguardian.com/football/2014/jul/03/massimo-cellino-leeds-united-paddy-kenny)

    According to this google search and below link, there are a load of songs with the number 17 in the lyrics. Can we have some blaring out on the loud speakers before kick off?

      @SE14: Can we kit out our players in shirts with a cheeky 17 placed on the arm? In our designated squad numbers, who wears the 17 shirt?

      @Shittu's Hankey: he's not even worth 300k let alone any more than that , I reckon we're going to get mugged up over this one , and if he is any good there will be loads of clubs after him yet strangely enough it seems only we are interested .
