Adam Smith: Hopes to make the step up to the Premier League next season

The 21-year old is currently on loan at Championship side Millwall where he has made a big impression in his 22 appearances so far this season.

Smith has spent time on loan at a number of clubs further down the leagues and he is now hoping that his next step will be the Premier League.

"I was at MK Dons last year doing well and then joined Leeds, but on the day I got there Simon Grayson was sacked, so that changed everything for me," he told Sky Sports.

"It wasn't the ideal situation for me, but I've managed to earn another shot at the Championship this year and I feel that I'm doing well at this level.

"The next step for me is obviously the Premier League, but the only way I'll get to that stage is continuing to work hard and show my ability whilst here at Millwall.

"The chance to live at home and not move around the country was a huge bonus when opting to join Millwall because it can take a while to settle when you have to uproot to a different place and new surroundings.

"Millwall is a great club and I have enjoyed my time immensely and long may it continue."

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.
