Middlesbrough rival Stoke for Smithies

Middlesbrough will compete with Stoke City for Huddersfield goalkeeper Alex Smithies.

The Mirror says new Boro boss Gordon Strachan will put Smithies at the top of his hit-list when he moves into the hot seat.

Strachan takes charge at Boro this week and the club's spies have already compiled a dossier on Smithies as they look for a new number one in a hurry.

Smithies, 19, is already a £1.5million target for Stoke City, so Strachan will have to dig deep to land him - although he is being strongly recommended to take a punt on the youngster.

Huddersfield want a fortune for Smithies, but they could be tempted to sell if a serious offer comes in during the next few weeks.
