Adam Smith: Tottenham defender happy to extend loan at Millwall

Smith initially joined Millwall on loan from Tottenham Hotspur in the autumn before extending his deal until the end of the season last week.

However, before the 21-year-old signed his extension, reports suggested Wigan Athletic were keen to hand Smith the chance to play in the top flight.

The right-back, who has made two appearances for Spurs, declined that opportunity in order to be guaranteed regular first-team football with Millwall.

"I wanted to stay here because I am playing every week," said Smith.

"I am still young and want to keep on improving, and I can only do that by playing.

"We talked about a move to a Premier League club but I wasn't guaranteed to play and I don't want to go anywhere just to sit on the bench."

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
