It would appear that stories yesterday suggesting that Dan Smith had failed a medical at Manchester City were wide of the mark.

Vital Crewe now understands that Smith himself has stalled the move as he evaluates his options and decides what is the best move for him. Hopefully he will follow the likes of Danny Murphy, Dean Ashton, Nick Powell and Max Clayton in staying-on at Crewe despite interest from elsewhere, rather than replicating the decisions made by Eddie Johnson (now at Portland Timbers in the MLS) and Ben Marshall (Leicester City).
