Jonté Smith has been linked with both Bolton and Motherwell recently- but it won’t be Fir Park he’s moving to says Stephen Robinson.

The Well boss is on the lookout for a new forward as Devante Cole heads back to Wigan following a loan stint. It leaves him short of forward options and he wants to improve that department. Not many names have been mentioned but both Bolton and Motherwell were recently linked with the same man (Gloucestershire Live).

It claimed that both Bolton and the Well were tracking Cheltenham Town forward Smith. His contract expires in January and he has scored one goal for Cheltenham since his arrival in September.

 

He did, however, net a hat-trick against West Ham’s U21s in the Leasing.com Trophy. Motherwell won’t be his next home though as Robinson dismissed links to Smith.

“I don’t know who he is, I don’t even know who the report was about if I’m being totally honest with you,” said Robinson. “I’m not any closer to getting anybody in.

“Cole is a loss for us, we don’t have massive amounts of money to play with. The list we are looking at is very small. It’s proving difficult to get someone in at the moment.”
