Wycombe Wanderers are one of several teams interested in signing the former Manchester United academy player Sam Smith.

The 25-year-old, who is currently a free agent after leaving Cambridge United where he scored 35 goals in 109 appearances, has also been heavily linked with Portsmouth and his former club, Reading.

If he were to sign for the Chairboys, he will become Matt Bloomfield’s fourth new arrival of the summer following the acquisitions of Richard Keogh from Ipswich Town, Kian Breckin on loan from Manchester City, and Luke Leahy from Shrewsbury Town respectively.

Smith, who began his career with Man United, departed the Red Devils in 2014 where he joined Reading’s academy as a 16-year-old.

He would spend seven years with the Berkshire outfit but only had one season in the first team.

This was during the 2017/18 campaign where he scored two goals in 11 games.

Six loan moves would soon follow to Bishop’s Stortford, Oxford United, Shrewsbury Town, Tranmere Rovers and Cheltenham Town respectively, before having a spell at Cambridge.

His transfer to the Us was made permanent in 2021, and after he helped the club achieve promotion to League One in 2022, he would go on to score seven times in nine matches at the end of the 2023 season which avoid an immediate relegation back to League Two.

This included a run of scoring in six consecutive games, with one of those goals coming against Wycombe in April of this year.
