Playing Career


Club(s)
Unusual for his time, Smalling missed out on the Football Club Academies.  He played for Walderslade Boys as a nine year old, as well as Lordwood FC, and then settled into mainstream education. Had a short spell at Millwall FC's Academy. It was whilst playing for Kent Schools and joined the Maidstone United FC youth set-up as a sixteen year old. After thirteen Isthmian League appearances, and a single goal, Middlesbrough FC signed Smalling ahead of Fulham FC, Gillingham FC and Charlton Athletic FC on 30 April 2008. However, his contract was cancelled within a month, and Fulham FC did sign him in June 2008. The transfer fee was £10,000 for every ten appearances made. On 26 January 2010, Smalling signed a contract with Manchester United FC, with effect from 1 July 2010, for £10 million. On 30 August 2019, Smalling signed for AS Roma, of Serie A, on a season-long loan that cost £3 million. He made 29+one Serie A appearances, scoring three goals. After returning to United and not featuring in the first team squad, he signed for Roma for £13.6 million on Transfer Deadline Day, 5 October 2020. He made two Serie A appearances up until 8 November 2020.
