Smith back at Cheltenham to complete rehab
Jonté Smith, the Bermuda forward, will remain at Sky Bet League Two side Cheltenham Town until he has completed his rehabilitation from injury.
The 26-year-old suffered ankle ligament damage during the first half of the play-off semi-final second leg against Northampton Town at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium on June 22.
Smith notched four goals in six starts and 12 substitute appearances for Cheltenham after joining at the start of September last year.
Several clubs including Macclesfield Town, Woking and Ebbsfleet United have expressed an interest in the striker since he was released by Cheltenham at the end of last season.
However, any hopes of winning a deal have been put on ice because of the injury. It could take another two to three months for Smith to make a full recovery.
The former with Crawley Town and Oxford United player wore an protective boot for more than a week after leaving the Northampton game on crutches.
He has just spent a fortnight working on his rehabilitation with physio Daniel Kett at St George’s Park as part of the PFA’s Gamechanger Performance programme.
“It was a significant injury in four parts,” Gavin Crowe, the Cheltenham physio, told Gloucestershire Live.
“There was damage to the deltoid ligament, and anterior talofibular ligament, along with syndesmosis and a medial knee ligament element too.
“Jonté will be back with us until he’s fit.”
