Freedman also revealed the club were unlikely to continue with their pursuit of fellow Scot Craig Conway, who is a free agent after leaving Dundee United.
A whole host of clubs including Leicester, Leeds and Watford are understood to be courting the winger's signature.

to the last poster that knows Smithy, you've made my day :) We threw him in the deep shark pool that was MU and he took the bait to help the club. Top bloke and ok he's done nicely financially in his moves but thats nothing compared to the feeling of pulling the White of Leeds back on

smithy isn't in Brighton he's been on holiday in Miami Florida and correct me if I'm
wrong but Grayson himself has said an interest in smith has been registered and things were at an early stage with Leeds so that doesn't sound like he's going to Brighton???
{Ed015's Note - a quote from Grayson himself '"The one thing we have got going for us is that they know the club and our ambition. That could help us if we go down that line but there as a long way to go before we even start considering it." .... Still a chance Smith could go to brighton but i doubt it myself}

I have kept of this forum but its time I said something. I'm a Rothwell lad have been for most of my life I new/Know Alan Smith And I can tell you right now He Loves Leeds United and was hart broken when he had to leave . Coming back would not have anything to do with money He would be here for one thing and one thing only to see us back in the prem. If he Does come back he would not be coming back to put things right as some have suggested on here as he as nothing to put right if anyone owes anything to any one its Leeds United owe him.
I just hope he gets the chance to adorn the white shirt of the team he loves

Max will not go to swansea he said himself at the end of the season why would I want to leave Leeds to go to a smaller club just because they are in the prem league he said himself he would only leave for one if the top 4
-------------------------------------------
Max never said such thing about leaving to anyone not even the top 4 clubs. He said he loves Leeds and got alot to put back into the club to repay what they did for him. He also said he won'ts prem football with Leeds no other club

to the person who said they used to see Alan out in Manchester, I can also vouch for that, when the man u lo were getting lairy and drunk he'd be set apart from the rest chatting to fans, a friend who supports spurs commented on several trips to watch spurs away that she couldn't get over how different he was to the lad at Leeds but how nice he was regardless. Most people who have met or got to know him are almost certain he will finally go back. can't wait, it's been way too long {Ed015's Note - Must admit he never seemed to have the same passion for Man utd than he showed at Leeds}

Here, Here, Alan Smith went to Man Utd because they were the only ones who were prepared to pay the whole of the transfer fee upfront. The club desparately needed the cash for survival, the other offers for him were based on recieving the fee on the drip.

I used to see Alan out in Manchester during his darkest days. One particular occation he was in a David Lloyd club in Cheadle near Stockport. That part of Greater Manchester has propably the largest contingent of Man Utd fans outside of the Home Counties. Alan was sat in the Members lounge wearing a Leeds Shirt!
With regards to his form - we all know he played his best football at Leeds, and most of us will understand how difficult it must be to concentrate on the game when everytime you look down and see the badge on your shirt you feel sick!

If it happens I for one will welcome him home....

what is with all the Lloyd Sam rumours? poor bloke he plays great at the beginning of the season banging in a few goals, gets injured and you lot start pushing him through the exit door. I don't think hes going anywhere, he'll be fighting for a 1st team place especially now watts gone as hes a fairly good winger for this league

Leeds winger Max Gradel is on Swansea's radar. The Ivorian would cost around £1.5m. (Daily Mirror)
---------------------------------------------
I don't think this would happen as bates would not sell him for such a low price. As in January Newcastle offerd £4-5 million.
--------------------------------------------------------
£1.5m for mad Max this is just laughable and an insult to the players real value. Leeds are not looking to sell key players like Max or Snodgrass. Apparently Leeds are in talks about extending there contracts with the club.
