Club Career

Club(s) Smith signed professional forms with a Leeds United AFC on 26 March 1998 after he was a trainee with the club. Following 38 goals in 172 Premier League appearances, Leeds were relegated and faced going out of business, Smith was forced to sign for rivals, Manchester United FC on 26 May 2004 for seven million pounds. United had offered an upfront payment, greatly valued and necessary for Leeds. Everton FC and Newcastle United FC had both attempted to sign Smith, but offered only transfer fee instalments. After 61 Premier League appearances and seven goals, Smith eventually joined Newcastle United FC for six million pounds on 3 August 2007. He made 84 league appearances without scoring any goals, he was allowed to leave United from June 2011, with Leeds United AFC showing interest, but it was not until MK Dons signed Smith on loan on 29 January 2012 that he played again. He scored once in sixteen League One appearances. After Newcastle released Smith on 1 June 2012, he was signed by MK on 10 July 2012, and scored another goal in 51 League One outings. He was released on 16 May 2014. Notts County FC signed Smith four days later as their new player-coach, and up until 2015-16, he had made fifty league appearances.
