Huddersfield Town could be willing to sell defender Tommy Smith for £4m, with the likes of Celtic and Stoke City both expected to make their move to sign 27-year-old.
Smith has been an integral part of the club since 2013, making nearly 200 appearances for the Terriers and being a key cog in the team which won promotion to the Premier League just a few years ago.
HUDDERSFIELD. Want 4m for Tommy Smith. CELTIC on case and so are STOKE.

Huddersfield manager Jan Siewert is looking to overhaul his squad this summer as he prepares them for another run at promotion from the Championship, and a number of players are expected to leave the club following their relegation last term.
Smith would no doubt be someone who Huddersfield fans might see as integral to the club given his experience and knowledge of playing at this level, but Siewert has decisions to make, and he might well opt to cash in on a player who may or may not be a first-team regular next term.
The 27-year-old moved to Huddersfield after being released by Man City as a youngster, and has gone on to become a firm fan favourite over the years for the Yorkshire club.
Smith is a brilliant player to have in and around your squad but there has to be a reason why the club are willing to sell.
Sometimes I guess it just gets to the point where clubs and players move on from each other, and this might be the case here with Smith and Huddersfield.
On the other side of things, he’d be a cracking signing for both Celtic and Stoke, and is someone who can slot in seamlessly with little fuss.
