    We can announce that Adam Smith has joined Millwall on a three-month loan.


    Well he wasn't getting any game time, except Carlisle, so hope he gets lots of game time at Millwall, which was a club good for both Kane and Townsend's development.

    Best of luck to the lad - talented rigtht back.

    Let's hope he fares better than the last young right back we loaned to Millwall. By the time Phil Ifil returned to White Hart Lane his nerves were so shot he was treating the ball like it was an unexploded grenade. The loan transformed from a future England star to a future Kettering reserve.

    Ouch. By the sounds of it, Smith cannot fare worse than Ifil !

    Think Millwall have changed a lot since then, as I said Harry Kane and Andros Townsend both played well there on loan.

    I work with a Millwall season ticket holder, he's really happy with this loan signing.

    Look forward to hearing his thoughts.

    I think Smith is a good full back, he seems to show drive from the full back position, likes a tackle, and while he ultimately might not make it with us given what a machine Walker can be, he should have a good career.

    This loan spell will be a good test for him.

    Sherwood certainly talking him up.

    He's had good reviews from fans at Bournouth, MK Dons (including getting 2 goals in their 'Goal of the Season' shortlist) and Leeds over the last 2 seasons, so all the signs are good that he should shine at Millwall.

    Saw him first hand for England U21s a couple of weeks ago and he was very good for them as well.

    We'll probably sell Walker to Real Madrid in a couple of years for a ridiculous sum and Smith will become a starter.

    Can we loan Walker as well so that Kyle Naughton gets a shot?

    Played 90 and got booked yesterday. Mate at work who went said it wasn't a great game but Smith was decent, in his words 'he looks like you can trust him not to drop a bollock, which is important in the Championship'.

    Did you press him for information on what level of football you can afford to 'drop a bollock'?

    I was impressed with him in the U19 Semi Final against Arsenal a few years ago, be good to see him make it.

    He's a Millwall fan mate...I didn't want to make the question too taxing! Just in case he forgot who I was and ate me.

    No love lost between Adam and the club he was at on loan last season.

    Reports from the chap at work not so sound after yesterday, reckons he needs to 'beef up a bit', otherwise he'll struggle at a higher level, general consensus is that they are very impressed with him going forward, and he does love to get forward, but his defensive work is quite far behind.

    To me, that's quite normal for a young full back I think.
