Alan Smith wants to stay at Old Trafford and claims he’s in negotiations to sign a contract extension.

It seems that despite my permanent worries, Sir Alex Ferguson’s plans still very much involve Alan Smith. Smudger’s form hasn’t been the best since his comeback yet the club is ready to offer him a new contract, according to the player himself.

‘I have a contract renegotiation coming up and, now I’m fit, I’m ready to fight for my future,’ he told the Daily Star Sunday.

‘I definitely want to stay at Old Trafford.

‘My agent has spoken to the club and hopefully that should be done in the next few weeks.’

I’ll be happy if it happens – good luck Smudger!
