    Newcastle United's Alan Smith has revealed it was MK Dons' brand of stylish football that attracted him to the League One club.

    Smith has joined the Dons on loan from Newcastle for the remainder of the season and the 31-year-old former Leeds and Manchester United player has even hinted that he could make the move a permanent one in the summer.

    "You have feelings about places sometimes," Smith said when he was officially unveiled by the club at a press conference.

    "The chairman and manager have a special feeling for this football club and when myself and my agent came down we both got that feeling as well.

    "I've seen MK Dons play a few times this season and I've been very impressed with how Karl Robinson's teams set-up and how they play football, especially against QPR in the FA Cup.

    "It's a football club which is building for the future and it was a decision which was so easy to make. As soon as you get belief about a place it's difficult to walk away, so fingers crossed that if things go well and we do get promoted something long-term can happen.

    .............................................................................................................................

    Alan, would that "long-term " deal be:

    a) £60,000pw ?
    b) £5,000pw?
    c) pay-as-you-play?
    d) you pay them?
    e) screw any deal, I'm off to MLS?

    Doubt he will still be there next season. Has a house in Orlando apparently - bet he goes there.

    More likely that he thought league one is a level he'd look amazing at, sealing himself a nice contract somewhere else in the summer.

    Maybe wanted to get playing again, confused about the whole contract thing though.

    Oh, and Milton Keynes is a great place to live. People who bad mouth it are clueless.

    We lived there for 6 months and our car got broken into 4 times...... That does say quite a lot about the city (albeit back in 1995 :bandit:)
