Alan Smith has attempted to clarify a remark that the Arsenal legend made about James Milner’s future live on Sky Sports on Monday night.

The former Gunners striker was addressing reports that Arsene Wenger is interested in signing Manchester City midfielder James Milner.

Whilst Smith revealed he was aware of speculation linking the England international with a move to The Emirates, social media interpreted the former striker’s comment as being a clear sign Milner was Arsenal-bound.

However, the Sky Sports pundit has since taken to his Twitter page to clarify his comments and to stress that he is unaware of any deal in place to sign Milner in the summer.

The 29-year-old is set to become a free agent at the end of the season after he failed to sign a new long-term deal with the Citizens.

Milner has scored four goals and has made six assists in 30 Premier League appearances this season, although the midfielder has only started 16 games.
