Don’t know much about the player – Stoke City boss on Nathan Smith rumours

Stoke City manager Michael O’Neill has appeared to rule out an unlikely Stoke move for out of contract Port Vale defender Nathan Smith.

The Potters have been linked with a move for the central defender who now looks set to leave Vale Park after failing to agree a new deal.

I think we have to be mindful that, at this minute in time, the centre back position is not a position where we are low on number…

Speaking to the Sentinel newspaper O’Neill commented: “I don’t know much about the player in question.

“I think we have to be mindful that, at this minute in time, the centre back position is not a position where we are low on number.

“We have a number of centre backs at the club and we also have a centre back returning from a loan spell in Kevin Wimmer.

“So those are all situations that we have to deal with. We’ve got Harry Souttar to return from a loan spell as well.
