LUFC Smith - I am ready for the championship
Young defender Adam Smith says he is ready to show what he can do in the championship with Leeds United.
Smith joined on transfer deadline day from Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur after they recalled him from his season long loan with League One side MK Dons, allowing him to sign for Leeds until the end of the season.
The 20-year-old now feels he is ready to prove himself in the championship at Leeds and he says he no hesitation in joining the club.
Speaking in the Yorkshire Evening Post, Smith said, "I feel I`ve done my time in League One and I was ready for a chance in the Championship.
"The attraction of coming to Leeds was the club itself. They`re a massive club with a massive fanbase and good players. I had no hesitation whatsoever in coming here.
"I was meant to be at MK Dons for the whole season and Tottenham just recalled me. With it being the last day of the window I was pretty surprised.
"Literally, the move here was done within a day of leaving MK Dons. I found out, packed my bags and came straight here."
Having come through the Tottenham Hotspur academy he is still waiting to make a senior appearance with the club but he already has close to 100 senior first team appearances to his name, having enjoyed loan spells at Wycombe Wanderers, Torquay United, Bournemouth and MK Dons.
He has also represented England at five levels and is currently a member of the under 21 squad having made four appearances, including three in their qualifying group for the European under 21 2013 championship finals.
