Smith was also asked about Sanson in today's presser for their clash with Manchester City.
"There's a lot of players I like. I won't name check a player from another club," he said.
"I've always said that this will be a quiet window for us. We are already planning for the summer window but we will never turn our noses down to a good deal.
"There's a possibility of some outs too [this month]. I'd like Connor Hourihane to stay but he's come to see me a few times saying he wants to go out and play games. We will look at the possibility of clubs. It will be a loan until the end of the season."
