Everton confident of deal for Newcastle's Smith

Everton boss Dave Moyes is confident of signing Newcastle United striker Alan Smith.

The Liverpool Echo says sources in the North East have indicated it is a question of 'when' not ‘if' he joins the Blues in a deal that is likely to cost around £2m.

Smith was pulled out of Newcastle's squad for their friendly last night against PSV Eindhoven - Toon boss Kevin Keegan insisted that that was due to an ankle injury – and he is now expected to talk terms with the Blues.
