Swindon Town have turned down a bid from an unnamed club for Michael Smith, Robins’ Chairman Lee Power has revealed.

Reports have linked the Iron and League Two side Portsmouth with the front man, who would be allowed to leave this January for a small fee.

“He came back from Barnsley and we had an offer in for him in the week which we turned down, and we’ve got two other clubs that we’re speaking to at the moment for Michael,” Power told BBC Wiltshire.

“I think everyone is aware Michael would like to go back north if possible, but he’s a good professional, a good lad and if he stayed with us we would be just as happy.

“An on-form Michael Smith is hard to deal with.”

Smith has scored 26 goals in 71 outings for the Robins.
