Smith to reject Newcastle coaching offer

Alan Smith is set to reject an offer from Newcastle United of a youth coaching role.

The Daily Star says the former England international, 31, will not be offered a new playing deal at Newcastle when his contract expires next month.

Smith, signed for £6m from Manchester United in 2007, has made just two appearances for the Toon in the last 12 months.

"There is a coaching role at Newcastle if he wants it, but I don't think that will happen," said Smith's agent Alex Black.
