Bluebirds move for Smith

10 November 2006 10:50
Cardiff City have revealed they have tabled a bid to bring Manchester United striker Alan Smith to Ninian Park on loan. The 26-year-old has been feeling his way back into first-team action after breaking his ankle in a clash with Liverpool back in February. Smith has made four appearances for United this season after making a quicker than expected return from the horrific injury and the Bluebirds are hoping to offer the former Leeds United striker regular first-team action. The move is believed to have been brokered by Cardiff chairman Peter Ridsdale, who was in charge of Leeds during Smith's spell at Elland Road. The Championship-topping Bluebirds need cover as first-choice striker Steve Thompson will be sidelined until December after suffering an Achilles injury.
