Pompey hijack Smith transfer

Last updated : 25 August 2009 By Angus Muller
Watford finally accepted Reading's offer over the past 48 hours but this afternoon they accepted a matching bid from Portsmouth and Smith now has two choices.

Brendan Rodgers will be furious if his No. 1 target slips through his fingers. reading are desperate for a goalscorer and he must have thought Smith was in the bag.

The Hornets striker, who has not travelled to Leeds with Watford tonight, is busy sorting out which club to move to.
