Doncaster Rovers boss Dean Saunders is chasing Newcastle United midfielder Alan Smith.

The People says Saunders wants to give Alan Smith a chance to revive his career.

The 30-year-old midfielder has been frozen out of the first team at Newcastle and is in the final year of his £60,000-a-week contract.

Boss Alan Pardew insists the former Manchester United man is not going out on loan – but Donny will investigate whether they might snap him up on a free transfer in January.
