Smith explains Premier League snub


Tottenham defender Adam Smith has explained his reasons to see out the rest of the season on loan at Millwall despite reported interest from other Premier League clubs.

The 21-year-old has impressed at right-back during his spell with the Championship side and preferred to experience regular first-team football with Millwall than sit on a bench in the top flight. Roberto Martinez’s Wigan were said to be very keen on Smith.

“I wanted to stay here because I am playing every week,” Smith told the press.

“I am still young and want to keep on improving, and I can only do that by playing.

“We talked about a move to a Premier League club but I wasn’t guaranteed to play and I don’t want to go anywhere just to sit on the bench.”
