Everton looking for Alan Smith?

Everton are in pole position for Smith
Everton are favourites to pop Newcastle in the scramble to sign Manchester United striker Alan Smith. Sportsmail revealed exclusively yesterday that Newcastle had a £6million offer accepted by the Premiership champions on Friday. Smith has reluctantly accepted his Old Trafford career is coming to a close and has held initial talks before deciding where to move to. He has rejected the chance to talk to Middlesbrough, even though they had a bid accepted, and Aston Villa have so far failed to make an offer. Smith's preference is believed to be Everton but their bid may hinge on striker James Beattie's £4m departure to Sheffield United.
