Portsmouth complete Smith signing
Portsmouth have signed Watford striker Tommy Smith on a four-year contract, for an undisclosed fee.
The 29-year-old, who had also attracted interest from Watford's Coca-Cola Championship rivals Reading, revealed he moved to the Fratton Park club after talks with Portsmouth's manager.
Smith told the club official website, www.portsmouthfc.co.uk: "I spoke to Paul Hart and it sounded brilliant.
"Everything down here is certainly what I was looking for and I'm sure I made the right decision."
Smith added: "The supporters here are well renowned for being fantastic, loyal and very, very noisy.
"When I've played here the atmosphere has been electric and it'll be nice to play on the right side of them this time, so I'm looking forward to it."
Hart added: "I've liked Tommy for a long time. He's clever, infectious, enthusiastic and a hard worker.
"He can play as a centre-forward, behind the centre-forward or out wide, so covers a lot of positions. He's going to be a great asset to us."
Smith netted 17 times for Watford in the Championship last season and has two goals in the current campaign.
He also played for Sunderland and Derby between his two spells at Vicarage Road.
