 Smith heads south

Dundee United forward Kevin Smith has joined English League One newcomers Notts County on trial.

The Edinburgh-born front-runner has already had a couple of successful loan spells with Raith Rovers and was heading off to train with the Magpies this week

"With the amount of attackers we have I told Kevin it may be worth looking elsewhere. I`m not pushing him out the door, but I have told him it will be difficult to get a first-team place.

"I`ve allowed him to go down this week and if they want to extend it I`d probably allow them to take him with them to their camp in Austria. But we`ll see what happens."
