Oldham front man on the radar of several clubs in higher divisions

Sky Sports understands a number of clubs are monitoring Matt Smith's situation at Oldham on the back of his FA Cup exploits this season.

The giant target man, 6ft 6in, was twice voted the Player of the Round as he excelled as Oldham beat Liverpool and took Everton to a replay.

Smith, an international management graduate, posed all kinds of problems for both clubs and it appears his four goals against Premier League opposition, despite starting two of the three matches on the bench, has caught the attention of clubs higher up the football pyramid.

Stoke, Celtic and Birmingham, with whom Smith's father enjoyed a spell with during his own playing career, are all thought to be looking at a player who has only been a professional for two seasons.

Such has been his meteoric rise, Smith has scored eight goals from 14 starts this term, it is also thought Scotland are keeping tabs on the form of a player who is eligible to play for them through his father.

Oldham are currently embroiled in a battle to retain their League One status and have yet to disclose which soon to be out of contract players they want to keep to Boundary Park.

put Ince in my fantasy football team, so it's no surprise at all really. I do that to players. Also responsible for De Jong and Upson being injured. Think I'll transfer in Di Maria just to ruin United....
